Bainy has be­lief Dee can get win

Evening Telegraph (First Edition) - - Uk World Today - BY TOM DUTHIE

BE­LIEF in what you’re do­ing is a big thing in foot­ball. Scott Bain has it and that’s why, de­spite Dundee tak­ing just one point from five Premier­ship games so far, he’s in up­beat mood­going­in­to­to­mor­row’s Tay­side derby against St John­stone.

The in-form goal­keeper gen­uinely be­lieves so l ong as he and his team-mates keep work­ing hard and lis­ten­ing to boss Neil McCann’s in­struc­tions, it won’t be long be­fore re­sults start to re­flect per­for­mances.

And even though the Dark Blues are up against a Saints team he rates highly and who’ve made a fly­ing start to the cam­paign, he fan­cies a first three-point haul could be com­ing this week­end.

“The boys are a lit­tle bit frus­trated by the re­sults so far but it is not some­thing they have let af­fect them in terms of the mood within the camp.

“If you take last week’s game at Rangers out of the equa­tion be­cause we were be­low par, apart from that, it has been lit­tle things that have swung the games so far and we could eas­ily have won a few of them.

“Things have not been in our favour but we are con­fi­dent in the way the man­ager is want­ing us to play. The things that are go­ing on be­hind the scenes dur­ing the week give us con­fi­dence we’ll get re­sults.

“We have watched the videos of the games so far and we know what we need to do and the mis­takes that need to be cut out.

“Hon­estly, the boys are rar­ing to go this week­end and we be­lieve we can get the three points.

“I do think it’s a big thing when you have that be­lief in what you’re do­ing. The man­ager is re­ally strong minded and so is Garts (as­sis­tant boss Gra­ham Gart­land).

“They have a strong and clear picture of how they want to play, how they want us to do things and we’ve bought into that.”

The fact McCann has made it clear pub­licly he wants his play­ers to be brave on the ball and, at times, take chances in or­der to re­tain pos­ses­sion
