Craig Curran is happy to share the workload with strike-partner Andrew Nelson.
And he is confident that he will soon be sharing the goals with the former Sunderland man as well.
Nelson has found the net four times in four games but fellow January recruit Curran is yet to get off the mark.
Curran’s contribution is measured by the team’s performances and results, however that doesn’t diminish his desire to get on the goal trail with his new club.
“Andrew has a really bright future ahead of him,” said the former Ross County and Dundee United man.
“He’s come in here, he’s enthusiastic, he’s willing to learn and he works hard on his game.

“His pace and aggression terrifies defenders and he’s showed already he can finish, so there has been a lot of positives for him so far.
“He’s quick, he can do it with both feet and is decent in the air – so all the ingredients are there.
“We have worked well together and it doesn’t bother me if he gets the goals.
“It’s about being a team player and if I do the donkey work for him to score then I’m fine.
“Obviously I want to score and that’s something I am keen to put to bed soon.
“Staying up is all that matters, so if someone had said we’d be winning games and climbing the table but I wasn’t scoring I would still have taken that.
“The goals will come, I’m sure of that.”
Curran added: “It’s not about individuals though because the only way we’ll stay up is as a team and that enthusiasm he’s showed is replicated elsewhere.
“Scott Wright has done really well, Seny in goals has been fantastic and everyone who joined the club in January has settled quickly.
“The gaffer made some great signings in January to go with the lads who are already here.”
The lack of goals and the fact that Curran arrived at Dens from Tannadice hasn’t stopped him becoming a fans’ favourite.
“The supporters have been very good to me,” he said. “I think they have seen the work I put in.
“Coming from United wasn’t a concern for me. I wasn’t ever not going to come because of that.
“Joining Dundee was the right thing to do and I knew that.”
Dundee have got themselves out of the bottom two on goal difference but the Premiership relegation battle is far from won.
“We are by no means out of it yet,” said Curran. “This is just the start of the fight to stay in the league really because every game is important now.
“The gaffer’s record at Ross County spoke for itself and everyone knows they were too quick to make a change when they did.
“I came in there the season he kept us up and we were in a far worse position back then.
“I think we were well adrift at one point but he built a team, got it playing and the place took off.
“He’s big on doing the basics properly, that’s the first thing any team has to do.
“He wants the right characters and our fitness levels have gone through the roof in the last month or so.
“There are similarities here, he’s added a lot of new faces in January and we’ve bedded in quickly.
“At County it wasn’t really until the middle of February the run of good results started so the fact we have been able to get a few good results lately is great.
“But we are nowhere near out of the woods yet. It’s just a start and that’s all it is.
“There are the same principles here than we had at Ross County, hard work and togetherness with players who can win you games.”
On tonight’s opponents, Curran observed: “Hibs are a good side, it will be a difficult game.
“They have a new manager so will be out to impress him but we are at home and hopefully we can use the confidence of Saturday in this one.”
Meanwhile, Curran has given an explanation for the patches on his socks that were the talk of the stadium at Livingston on Saturday.
“The socks I had didn’t fit so I asked the kit woman to cut a slit in it but it ended up the whole sock ripped,” he said.
“My shinguards slipped out so I ended up with them covered in tape to stay in place.
“Hopefully I’ll have a new pair of socks for the game tomorrow.”
