The Spiders head to The City of Discovery to take on third place Dundee this afternoon in what is the club’s biggest game of the season to date. As the manager always says, every game is huge, and with things so tight at the top end of the Championship this one is sure to be a real challenge.
OWEN COYLE’S THOUGHTS
“This is going to be another tough game, as they all are in this league. We’ll be up against a Dundee side who were rightly favourites at the start of the season for the league and not a lot has changed from that. It’s a game that we are all looking forward to because we want to be playing against the best players and the best teams and this is a game that affords us that opportunity.”
“We know we’ll need to be at our best going there as we’ll be up against a side littered with players who could be playing in the Premiership. That presents a challenge and it’s a challenge that we are relishing.”
“I felt we gave a good account of ourselves on our previous trip to Dens Park and played well, we obviously made some errors and were punished for them but we know that has no bearing on this game. What’s gone before counts for nothing and for us, the important thing is what we do in the next game. If we can perform at a high level, which we are very capable of doing, then we know we can win these tough games.”
“We will approach this one in the same positive manner which we approach every other game, and we’ll look to get on the ball, pass it well and give a good performance. We know that if we do that, and do it well, it can lead to wining games.”
“It’s obviously a busy six or seven days ahead but for us at this stage, the only game we are focussed on is Dundee. Tuesday night’s Scottish Cup tie will have no bearing on our approach to this one and will only come in to our thoughts once the final whistle goes this afternoon.”
In terms of the squad, I’m hoping to have broadly the same squad available to us to that which we have had in recent weeks. There’s obviously been some movement this week and we have been delighted to be able to add Euan Henderson. He’s a terrific young player who will add pace, power and quality to the team. He can score and create goals and has shown already in his short career that he has the ability. We are excited to continue to help Euan with his development.”
“Jason has obviously departed to join Cove Rangers and we wish him all the best. That alongside Johnny Kenny and David Boateng returning to their respective clubs leaves some room to add to the squad and that is something which we are looking to do, if we can, in this window.”
