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.”
