  • McIntyre Wants His Team To Put Pressure On Hibs

    Jim McIntyre may not have had witnessed that 'new manager bounce' that most teams do since he took over but he has seen an improvement in the players in the past few games which is encouraging.

    Dundee’s draw against St Mirren ended a run of five defeats in a row and also seen McIntyre eventually getting off the mark with his first point and also goal as Dundee manager.

    After having time to regroup over the international break, he will take his side to the capital to take on off-form Hibernian who are currently on a four-game losing streak.

    Despite the Edinburgh teams recent run, McIntyre knows that he will be up against a side that are much better than their league position tells us.

    “Without a shadow of a doubt,” answered McIntyre when questioned if he had seen an improvement from the team since coming in.

    “It has been taken on a wee bit from the Motherwell game and then even more positive in terms of the St Mirren performance. It is just about trying to turn that and the small margins into points.

    “But we know we are facing a top side in Hibs. They are an exciting team to watch and have a lot of attacking threat. We have to go there and make sure we are putting them under pressure.

    “You are going to have peaks and troughs throughout any season but with them being at home Lenny will have them fired up.

    “We know they have good players and they will be looking to take maximum points. But for us, the encouraging signs have been there and we want try and build on the St Mirren result.”

      Kenny Miller came back to haunt his old club when he opened the scoring for his sixth goal in four games but Nathan Ralph was sent off on the 19th minute with our opponents slotting home the resulting free-kick.

      Rangers then had a goal ruled offside but from then on in, Dundee defended expertly to limit the Glasgow club to just one attempt on target in the second half.

      The result meant that Dundee moved off the bottom of the Premiership on goal difference for the first time since Motherwell defeated the Dark Blues on the 1st September at Dens Park.

      “I was delighted considering we were down to 10 men for so long,” beamed Jim McIntyre.
      “It is a difficult match when you go down to 10 men against one of the best sides in the country. But I thought the boys showed great resolve and good organisation. Having said that, I didn’t think Rangers cut us open that much. Jack (Hamilton) has made one or two saves.
      “We knew we would have to give up the wider areas and defend a lot of crosses but we were nice and narrow and the distances between our two fours were very good. So, the players deserve all the credit because it is not easy to handle that.”
      “It was an opportunity to get off the bottom of the league today.
      “We have had two or three of them and we haven’t managed to take them. So, I am really pleased that we have managed to do that but I will reiterate there is still so much hard work ahead.
      “There are a lot of tough games in December so it is just a case of one at a time.
      “The boys are in a happy place at the moment. There is a real spirit of togetherness there that you see on the training ground every day.”

      Hibernian, Oxford United, Gillingham and Colchester United are all said to be interested in Nabi with Hibs thought to be the front runners.

      The striker signed a six-month contract with Dundee in August but has failed to make his mark on the team. In nine outings for Dundee, Nabi has scored just once which came in a home defeat to Kilmarnock which was to be Neil McCann's last game in charge of the Dee. 

      Since the arrival of Jim McIntyre as manager, he has found opportunities hard to come by and it would be no surprise to anyone if he was to move on in the next transfer window when his deal is up.
