Dundee’s draw against St Mirren ended a run of five defeats in a row and also seen McIntyre eventually getting off the mark with his first point and also goal as Dundee manager.
After having time to regroup over the international break, he will take his side to the capital to take on off-form Hibernian who are currently on a four-game losing streak.
Despite the Edinburgh teams recent run, McIntyre knows that he will be up against a side that are much better than their league position tells us.
“Without a shadow of a doubt,” answered McIntyre when questioned if he had seen an improvement from the team since coming in.
“It has been taken on a wee bit from the Motherwell game and then even more positive in terms of the St Mirren performance. It is just about trying to turn that and the small margins into points.
“But we know we are facing a top side in Hibs. They are an exciting team to watch and have a lot of attacking threat. We have to go there and make sure we are putting them under pressure.
“You are going to have peaks and troughs throughout any season but with them being at home Lenny will have them fired up.
“We know they have good players and they will be looking to take maximum points. But for us, the encouraging signs have been there and we want try and build on the St Mirren result.”
Easter Road Stadium opened on 4 February 1893 with a match between Hibernian and Clyde.
In the next decades, Hibernian regularly contemplated moving to another site, but finally decided in 1922 to stay at the ground. Two years later three banks of terraces and a main stand were erected.
Easter Road Stadium recorded its highest attendance in 1950 when 65,860 fans attended the derby versus Hearts.
Minor improvements to the stadium were made in the 1950s and 1960s, but few in the decades following. By the late 1980s, the state of Easter Road had significantly deteriorated and safety measures had reduced capacity to about 27,000.
In the early 1990s, Hibernian considered moving to a brand new stadium, however plans were abandoned in 1994, and one year later a redevelopment of Easter Road was started. Two new stands were built behind the goals, and the rest of the stadium was converted into an all-seater.
The redevelopment of Easter Road continued in the 2000s, first when a new West Stand was built in 2001, and most recently in 2010 when the new East Stand opened.
Martin Boyle and Simon Murray scored as Hibernian won for the fourth match in a row to stay third in the SPFL Ladbrokes Premiership table, and keep Dundee on the bottom. Marcus Haber had given Neil McCann's men a fighting chance with his first half equaliser but the defeat is the fifth in a row for the Dark Blues.
