    Since his arrival on a short-term contract at Dens Park, Jon Aurtenetxe has impressed Neil McCann in training.

    Unfortunately for the Spaniard, Kevin Holt’s form in the team has meant that he has yet to feature for the Dee in a competitive match.

    McCann has put this down to Aurtenetxe’s arrival because before he joined up, Holt was the only recognised left-back in the squad.

    “Jon is good. He’s unfortunate that Holtie has kicked on a bit and has been looking good the last few games.

    “Holtie knows that if his performances dip Jon is there and he’s reacted.

    “Some players don’t enjoy that competition but he has and upped his performances.

    “If a situation arises through injuries or suspension, Jon has proved he’s ready to come in.

    “I like my full-backs to play with a purpose and get forward and he does that.

    “He has a real good pedigree and he is quality.

    “I gave him a few days off last week to go back to Spain and he came back ready to go again.”
