It was great to see Kane Hemmings get among the goals at Alloa but I think we all knew he would start scoring again.
I think it is fair enough to say that he needed to get on the scoresheet both for his own sake and the sake of the club.
However, when a striker is going through a tough time I think it is unfair for all the onus to be on him.
Throughout a team there is responsibility on others to help a teammate who might need it and I would say Hemmings was entitled to feel that getting goals should not be left to him alone.
You can surely also look to the midfielders to chip and Paul McGowan, for example, has done that, while even defenders should be threatening the opposition net at setplays.
To get a couple of goals against Alloa will give Hemmings’ confidence a lift and ease any pressure he was feeling.
I also think the 3-0 win away to a tough Alloa team is proof that Dundee are gradually improving this season.
No one – including me – saw the late collapse against Partick Thistle coming but that’s now two league wins back to back for the first time this season.
They will be looking to build on that achievement when they host Morton at Dens tomorrow night – a very winnable-looking game, on paper at least.
The Dark Blues do appear to be heading in the right direction and perhaps it’s just in time for the Dundee derby against United.
It’s looming large on the horizon and it promises to be a hugely interesting game at Dens in eight days’ time.
Talking of United, to make it six home wins out of six is very impressive.
I hear they weren’t at their best against Partick Thistle but the home form, overall, has been blistering.
In a tight league, winning your home matches is essential.
United are managing to do that just now and they deserve credit for that.
~ Sadly, Arbroath couldn’t make it a hat-trick of Championship victories.
The lads had done superbly well to beat first Morton at home then go to Partick and beat them 3-1.
We were looking to make it a treble at Dunfermline on Tuesday but it was a slightly disappointing performance from us.
The gaffer Dick Campbell freshened the team up but we did not work the opposition hard enough.
Now comes the really big match – Alloa at home – this Saturday!
That will be an absolute cracker and I would advise any neutral spectator looking for an entertaining and enthralling game of football to watch to get along to Gayfield on Saturday.
