Dundee put their missed opportunities of last week firmly behind them after they came from behind against 10-man Livingston to claim a much needed three points thanks to goals from Andrew Nelson and Scott Wright.
It looked like the same old hard luck stories of past would be n the cards again when Livingston went ahead just minutes after being reduced to 10-men following a reckless challenge by Shaun Byrne. Dundee did push forward but would go int the break still behind after failing to put a shot on target.
That however all changed in the second half.
Andrew Nelson put the teams back on level terms with a fantastic looping header from a Scott Wright cross. Following an awful challenge on substitute Jesse Curran on the edge of the Livi box, Wright would step up with less than ten minutes to play and tucked away a delicious free-kick that even ‘Glorious’ Gary Harkins would have been proud of.
This was Dundee’s second victory in five matches and this sees them move above Hamilton in 10th on goal difference.
"It was a goal fit to win any game from Scott Wright,” beamed Jim McIntyre.
“We were delighted to come back. We lost a really poor goal. We showed a great reaction. Overall, I think we deserved to win the game."
“It’s nice to be out of the bottom two but it doesn’t matter now. All that matters is that we’re out of the bottom two in May. There are going to be ups and downs, I’ve said that before.
“The three teams at the bottom of the table are all battling. You look at St Mirren going up to Aberdeen and picking up a point.
“For us it’s great for confidence but you can be back in the bottom two next week. Until you start to put a run of victories together then you have to concentrate on the next game.”
