Neil McCann will give trio Crescendo van Berkel, Glen Kamara and Nils Rutten another run out when Dundee visit Gayfield Park on Saturday to take on Arbroath in the team’s second pre-season game of the summer.
The trio done enough in Tuesdays 3-1 win over St Mirren to convince McCann to give them another chance to impress.
The manager wants them to show him that they can offer something different than the current crop of players already at his disposal. Only then will he go to the Board of Directors to talk about funding for any deals.
The Dundee gaffer said: “It is not about numbers, it is about quality.
“If the right player becomes available I will go with the begging hat to John and hopefully he will throw some money into it.
“We have got quite a number there and there are obviously a few trialists within that group – boys I want to have a look at.
“They have to be better than what we’ve got – that’s clear.
“The pedigree of the players we are bringing in, without doubt on paper and because of where they have been previously, means they are of that stature.
“But they have to prove it to me.”
