After picking up four points from our last two home games, winger Roarie Deacon is hoping to add to that tally when Hearts visit on Saturday.
Deacon said, “I think as a team it’s on our minds subconsciously that we play better at home.”
“We’ve done very well at home this season, we picked up the point against Hibs, beat St Johnstone and I think we’ve been unlucky in the other games, too.
After drawing against Kilmarnock last Saturday, Deacon is hoping the team can up their game on at Dens.
“As a team we want to improve on the Kilmarnock game for Saturday and put things right and pick up the three points.
“I don’t think we played well as a unit for the whole 90 minutes — we’re not happy with that, we know we can do a lot better.
With Kilmarnock and Partick yet to win this season and teams like Ross County on a run of bad results, the Englishman is hoping the Dees can hit a run of form to propel the team up the league.
“We need to get a bit of momentum going in the league to get us in a higher position..
“Sooner or later we’ll click as a team much better.
“We’ve got a lot of new players in, everyone’s gelling but we’ve been playing well.
“In the league we’ve been good most weeks. Kilmarnock wasn’t our greatest performance, we know that as a team, we just have to put it right.”
