Keeper confident boss’ methods will come good
and create chances has, Bain feels, also been a help.
“He wants you to play out from the back and through the lines at times. He’s made that clear to us and come out and said so.
“That helps because he’s shown he will take the responsibility and it means the boys can go out and be brave on the ball.”
He certainly believes that has helped young defenders like Kerr Waddell and Jack Hendry to have the confidence to go out and show what bright prospects they are.
“We’ve been playing with a young back f our but I’ve been really impressed with how they have been willing to take the ball, be brave and take chances.
“It helps that people know it’s the way we’ve been told to play and even more so because I think people have seen there’s been an improvement in our play and, in the majority of the games, we have played well.”
An established Premiership performer himself, Bain knows other ingredients go to making a successful top-flight team and acknowledges tomorrow’s visitors have them.
“This is my fourth season here and St Johnstone have played pretty much the same way all that time and a lot of the players have been there for a while as well.
“That consistency is part of the reason why they’ve been successful. We’ve had a big turn around of players and it means you are adapting to getting used to the way each other play.
“There’s been different messages in that time, but now it is time for us to get over that and the way we’re working I believe we will.”
Scott Bain is hoping Dundee will bounce back from their Ibrox defeat.
