A new record crowd of 6,812 between Dundee and Ross County were on hand to see a pulsating tie at Dens Park which saw both sides finish with a point a piece.
This result also saw a new record five games undefeated against County at home for The Dee.
Despite falling behind, the team showed great character to fight their way back into the match before eventually equalising through an El Capitan Thunderbolt penalty after Cammy Kerr was fouled in the box.
There’s no doubting it, Dundee were deserving of all three points yesterday.
This was my first time seeing this side led by Neil McCann in the flesh and what a difference from the previous regime in their last few months in charge.
The first half hour may have been hard to watch, especially with falling behind so early but from then on, Dundee found their feet, controlled the match and pressured a County side that fell right out the game once we got going.
The penalty saw us deservedly draw level and we should have really went on to win this match. The golden chance for the victory fell to Marcus Haber who headed straight to the keeper from just a few yards out. I think the whole crowd had their hands in their heads when the keeper comfortably saved his effort as it would have been the goal that cemented our Premiership status for next season.
None the less, it was another point on board for the Dee as McCann’s reign as manager has seen the team add seven points from nine onto their tally. The Interim Manager has turned this team around with ease and the players seem to be playing with a new lease of life.
What looked like mission impossible to keep Dundee out the bottom two, may now be about to become reality and it might just be achieved before we kick a ball against Caley on Wednesday night.
Hamilton travel up to Ross County on Tuesday in a game they need to win. Anything other than three points for the Accies will see the Dee safe from any potential Play-Off battle.
County will go into their game with the upper hand in every aspect of this tie so you will find mostly every Dee tuning into the wireless or refreshing their Facebook/Twitter feed in the hope the Highlanders can do us a favour.
Let’s hope they can.
