After finally leading Dundee to their first win under his guidance, manager Jim McIntyre led the plaudits for his team who he feels have progressed on from when he took over back in october.
The past three matches have seen his team remain undefeated with two draws and that all important win and even thought the teams above us have also started to pick up points, performances have greatly improved with McIntyre in the dugout.
Not only was last nights 4-0 victory his first win since his appointment, it was also Dundee’s first home Premiership win of the season, something that he was keen to achieve sooner than later.
“It gets the monkey off the back, having not won at home,” said a delighted and relieved McIntyre.
“That stat is gone and thank goodness for that. It is also three games unbeaten and we are coming into a really tough period.
“First and foremost, we wanted to win the game. It didn’t matter how we did it but to score four goals was fantastic. We got a wee bit of luck with a couple of deflections but the most important thing for me was that we were trying to do the right things in the right areas.
“There has definitely been progress. It was clear to see that tonight.
“I thought the players showed a great hunger at times even though it was sometimes scrappy. Games at this level are difficult to win but we got the breaks at the right times.
“I thought you could see a confidence appear in our play when we scored the second and third goals. We started to knock the ball about nicely.”
