The five Dundee January signings who made their debut at Hamilton are assessed by Courier Sport.
The on-loan Aberdeen played wide left and didn’t see much of the ball in the first half. On a rare counter attack he got the ball stuck under his feet. He did start the move which ended up with a great chance for Martin Woods, though. Then, on 66 minutes, he showed his class with a fantastic opening goal. Wright could be the game-changer at the top of the pitch that Dundee have been crying out for.
The former Dundee United man came to the rescue early in the game to make a crucial block after his central defensive partner Gensy Kusunga messed up. He made a few timely clearances and interceptions after that and, all in all, looked the part.
The Sunderland youngster has an eye for a pass but didn’t get involved as much as he would have hoped. Came with a reputation of being a free-kick specialist but ballooned one over the bar from a very good central position just before half-time. The game passed him by a bit and he was replaced by Paul McGowan on the hour.
The Swede has the physique of a centre-back but was deployed as Dundee’s holding midfielder. The pace of the game probably came as a shock but he showed enough to suggest he will be an asset.
Made a shaky start when he was dispossessed and Steven Boyd came close to scoring. Should be pleased with his performance after that, though. Was solid at right-back for the rest of the game.
