Spence be­lieves he can reach top

Evening Telegraph (Late Extra Edition) - - SPORTS -

num­ber of years now. He’s put a lot of faith in me so I’m just try­ing to re­pay him.

“I be­lieve in my own abil­ity as well. From a young age I knew I could play at this level and I want to play at a higher level too.

“I need to thank the gaffer and Dundee for giv­ing me a chance.

“I don’t know if it’s my abil­ity or just sheer will to win but he saw some­thing to bring me up here and I think my per­for­mances on the park are show­ing that.”

The young­ster is a con­fi­dent sort and not just in his own abil­ity.

He is adamant the Dark Blues have what it takes to cause an up­set to­mor­row as they travel to Park­head to face cham­pi­ons Celtic.

Spence said: “Away to Celtic is al­ways a tough ask but we’re re­ally look­ing for­ward to it.

“They’re a top team on 58 games un­beaten but records are there to be bro­ken. We’re look­ing to be the team to do that.

“There’s no bet­ter way to do it than on their home turf.

“The full team has to be on it to­mor­row and hope that Celtic have an off-day.

“We can take pos­i­tives from Hibs and St John­stone go­ing there and get­ting draws.

“We want to go there and do bet­ter though. We want to win and put on a good show as well.

“We’re tak­ing it game by game at the moment.”

Dundee mid­fielder Lewis Spence is grate­ful for his run in the first-team and is de­ter­mined to make the most of his chance.
