A Dundee win is just around the corner, insists goalkeeper Jack Hamilton.
The Dark Blues sit pointless in the Premiership after successive defeats from St Mirren and Aberdeen.
In both games they have been guilty of squandering good scoring chances and have also handed their opponents goals on a plate, with Saturday’s penalty for the Dons in the 1-0 loss following on from the gift-wrapped winner for the Buddies seven days previously.
They have a winnable-looking Betfred Cup tie coming up at home to Ayr United this Saturday before the league action resumes against St Johnstone at McDiarmid Park.
Hamilton believes that success is close and that they are overdue a break.
He said: “When you look at the squad we have and how well we have played in the first two games it is hard to believe we don’t have any points to show for it.
“I thought we did well against Aberdeen and we put so much effort in but we came away with nothing.
“It is so disappointing to have nothing for it.
“It is frustrating that we aren’t taking our chances.
“We know we have some fantastic strikers who are expected to take all their chances but that won’t happen because it isn’t always easy.
“I think we maybe just need a rub of the green, to score one or two and then that will get the ball rolling.”
The Dark Blues’ match against the Dons was watched from the stand by transfer target Sam Jones, with the Shrewsbury Town striker expected to complete his move this week.
