Dundee boss Paul Hartley needs Phil Roberts to step up to the plate this pre-season.
If the former Arsenal kid isn’t up to the job, and he’s got three games to prove it, then the Dark Blues gaffer needs to cut his losses and sign a replacement.
Because, as was the case last season, Dundee are still in desperate need of width.
Since signing on the dotted line a year ago, Roberts has only ever shown the fans glimpses of what he is capable of.
The 21-year-old is lightning. He’s got the tools to give any back four a headache, as he proved against Celtic last season.
But he’s never been able to piece it all altogether.
With no other out-and-out winger on the books, the door is wide open for the Englishman. Shape up or face being shipped out. It’s your choice, Phil.
