Dundee may not have had a fixture over the weekend but they still got a very welcome boost.
Lyall Cameron performing so well for Scotland U/21s can only be a positive for the Dark Blues.
He scored a really nice goal as the young Scots won in Belgium.
And it was great to read his comments after the game.
He showed real maturity and self-awareness when he said he didn’t think he’d got going yet in the Premiership.
He will be coming back to Dens full of confidence after a performance like that.
That can only be a good thing for the Dee.
Because they’ve got a big, big game coming up this weekend.
The season has been stop-start throughout and yet another international break probably wasn’t great timing for Tony Docherty’s side.
They’ve been on a great run so keeping that momentum going is the plan.
Hibs at home looks like a pivotal game in their season to me.
If the Hibees win, they leapfrog the Dark Blues.
Dundee win, however, and they open up a five-point gap on the Edinburgh side.
Over the course of the season this could be the point where we see Docherty’s side make themselves real top six challengers long-term.
Home form has been really good and they’ll fancy their chances.
It’s another huge game that will tell us a lot about this Dundee team.
