Kenny Miller rolled back the years last night as he inspired Dundee to their first premiership home win of the season as the dark blues closed the gap on hamilton to just five-points.
Hamilton may have went into this match on the back of taking all three-points against St Mirren at the weekend but Dundee would produce a performance that would result in an emphatic 4-0 score line which included a first senior goal for Jesse Curran and a hat-trick for striker Kenny Miller.
The game did start off slow but when Dundee found their feet, you knew there would only be one winner at Dens and this team done it in style with a direct, attacking display which our opponents had no answer for.
This was Dundee’s first home win in the league since May which also came against Hamilton and their second so far this season, which also came against Hamilton.
Dundee sit five-points behind Hamilton in tenth and one behind St Mirren in eleventh, who picked up a point at Easter Road last night with both playing one game more than the Dark Blues.
"I talked about it being a must win for us so we knew we needed to put in a performance,” said Kenny Miller who has now scored five goals in three matches.
"Since the manager came in, we're seeing a better level of performance, a better work ethic and a better understanding of what he wants. The appetite to work hard for each other, to get forward, to get back and defend, it's the team moving together."
