It’s a game his team cannot afford to lose but Dundee boss John Brown is seeking a victory at Championship leaders Hamilton tomorrow.
Defeat for the Dark Blues would stretch the gap at the top to a worrying nine points.
That’s what makes a loss unthinkable but Bomber is adamant that won’t see his side head west willing to settle for a point.
“It is important we don’t get beat and let the gap stretch to nine.
“But we’re not a team that goes anywhere and settles for a draw. We’ll go there and be positive and look to win,” he said.
“Hamilton are the form team. They’ve had a lot of praise and it’s been deserved because they’ve done well so far.
“If we can go there and win, the gap will be just three points and that will show we haven’t been doing badly either.”
Whatever the result, the manager has again issued a reminder that leagues are not won in November.
“Throughout my career as a player, my view was that if you could be consistent from this point on, then you’d be in the mix come the end of the season.
“We’ve been on a good run and the aim is to keep it going into next year but nothing is going to be won in this game.”
Dundee will be boosted by the return of striker Craig Beattie and Bomber believes he could have a big part to play.
“He’s got experience and a physical presence that we maybe lacked a bit against Falkirk.
“I was happy with Craig Wighton but we have to remember he’s 16 and is one for the future.”
Wighton was allowed to join up with the Scotland youth squad yesterday to take part in the first day of a two-day training camp before returning for today’s preparations at Dens.
