  • Nelson And Wright Inspire Dundee To Victory Against Livi

    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.”

      In a statement released by the club this afternoon, it read: 
      McIntyre leaves Dundee with just a 12.9% win record, the worst in our history. 

      Despite major player movement in the January transfer window, he was unable to turn around the fortunes of the club which resulted in our relegation to the Championship and he has now paid the price for failing to do so.

      The ex Ross County manager was never a popular choice to take over the reigns from Neil McCann but those with the final say within Den Park told us that the stats showed he was the right man for the job. However, those stats would ultimately prove to be corrupt.

      With many fans declaring an unwillingness to purchase a season ticket if he remained in charge and constant displeasure that he had not yet been relieved of his duties before his record ten-match defeat streak, this should be seen now as some what of a clean slate on the on-field side as the club prepare to adjust to life in the Championship.

      Our owners will now start the search for the 37th manager of Dundee who will no doubt be tasked with bouncing straight back up to the top-flight.

      As the game entered its final stages yesterday, chants of  "10 in a row, he's got to go" rang round the home support as the fans voiced their verdict on our worse ever manager who has now guided us to ten defeats on the trot to ensure our exit from the Premiership.

      Despite the fans unanimously letting the manager and owners know they have no faith in the current regime in the dugout, McIntyre said he is “determined” to lead the club out of the Championship next term.

      Goals either side of half time sealed the victory for St Johnstone but Dundee did have their chances to score, with Ethan Robson coming the closes when he fired over from only a few yards out.

      There is still six game left to play to save our Premiership status but with each passing week and performance, it’s all starting to look very bleak. McIntyre still believes though that he can lead his team to safety.

      The 21 year-old striker has netted four times in six appearances since his move from Sunderland but has been stuck on the sidelines since injuring himself while celebrating his goal against Livingston on February 16th.
      "Andrew is back in full training, which is a great boost," announced McIntyre.
      "He obviously started his career here very well and has been important.
      "He's banged in a few goals and looked a handful and a threat to the opposition. That gives us another option up top and you can't have enough of them."
      Long-term absentee Andrew Davies will also have to wait to see if he will feature on Saturday at some point though it looks likely he will miss out due to McIntyre's response.
      "Andrew Davies is still uncomfortable so he is the only doubt.
      "He did a bit of training for about a week and he felt something. We got it X-rayed again and it has shown up fine.
      "Apart from the long-term absentees everyone took part which is great at this stage of the season."
