  • O'Hara Hoping to Build On Fridays Win

    Following Friday’s victory over Rangers were the midfielder continued his trend of scoring against the Glasgow club at Dens Park, Mark O’Hara is hoping that the much-needed win can see the club propel up the league.

    O’Hara struck twice in the second half, either side of Josh Windass’ goal, to give Dundee their first win in seven games and lift them off the bottom of the table.

    The midfielder has now scored in all three ties with the Gers at Dens since his arrival last summer and his double made it four in total.

    “I don’t know what it is about Rangers, but long may it continue,” said O’Hara.

    “That can be the result that turns the tide – it’s a massive win for us.”

    “There’s something special about a win on a Friday night, under the lights, live on the telly. The place is buzzing just now and hopefully we can continue it next Saturday against Ross County.

    “Psychologically, getting off the bottom is massive. Nobody likes to be down there. We’ve got a brilliant squad in there and we shouldn’t be where we are, so it’s now time for us to be looking up rather than down.”

    Friday also seen Scott Allan show Dundee fans what they have been missing from the injured playmaker with a pinpoint pass to set up the winner.

    “You could see Scott’s quality in his assist on Friday. It’s brilliant to have him back,” proclaimed O’Hara.

    “He’s had a hard time of it with injuries over the last couple of months but he’s going to be an asset to the team in the coming weeks.

    “It’s great to know when you make runs that somebody is going to pick it out. He has done that over the years, he’s somebody who is going to play the killer pass, and that’s something we’ve been lacking.

    “We’ve been playing good football but there hasn’t been penetration.

    “That’s Scott’s game – he’s going to find the killer ball.”

      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.”

      The defender was punished following his challenge on Daniel Candeias on the edge of the Dundee box which resulted in Rangers equalising after Kenny Miller had put the Dee ahead.

      Following the end of the match, Dundee manage Jim McIntyre said that he had spoken to the referee Alan Muir and he had confirmed that it was for denying a clear goalscoring opportunity.

      TV footage however shows that fellow defender Andrew Boyle was in close proximity and able to make a challenge if Ralph was unable to do so.

      The appeal will be heard by a disciplinary tribunal this Wednesday.

      The ref against Rangers was Alan Muir. How did you rate his performance in this game?

      Dundee earn a great point today after going down to 10 men and keeping Rangers out.
      Kenny Miller opened the scoring in the 9th minute. However the Dee didn't stay in the lead long after Ralph brought down Daniel Candeias just outside the box and Andy Halliday scored from the free-kick.
      Kyle Lafferty had a goal chopped off for off-side and it was a big felt off for the Dark Blues.
      Dundee lasted the next 70 minutes and held out for a point that takes us above St Mirren in the league.
