The Spiders head to Dens Park tomorrow to take on Gary Bowyer’s Dundee in the cinch Championship. It will be the second meeting of the sides already this season with the clubs having met in the group stage of the Premier Sports Cup, with the dark blues running out 2-1 winners at Ochilview.
Ahead of the game Owen Coyle gave his thoughts to the club media team, saying: “We are really looking forward to what we know will be a real tough test for us at Dens Park tomorrow. With the quality of players that they have throughout their team we know that Dundee are worthy favourites. There’s no doubt, and rightly so, they’ll be tagged as favourites but that said, we have already shown we can go toe to toe with the best teams in this league, and that’s exactly what we want to do tomorrow.”
“The mood in the camp is always good with how we work and the attitudes we display in terms of wanting to give our very best every time we go out on the park, but that absolutely is boosted by how well we have started. We know that we need to do this week on week in order to continue competing though.”
“It’s fair to say that on the face of it, every game has been an away game for us this season and tomorrow is no different. We’re heading to a ground that will have a good crowd and a right good atmosphere and it’s all to play for. I know Gary Bowyer very well and I’m looking forward to the challenge of coming up against his side.”
“We have had another great week in training with the players continuing to work really hard and we are looking positive in everything we do it. It’s important that translates into tomorrow’s game now. We have the utmost respect for Dundee, and rightly so, but we are not going to Dens Park in fear of anyone, we are going there to compete. To do that we know we’ll need to be at our very best and if we can reach those levels, we’ve already shown that we can win these sort of games.”
