Dundee manager Neil McCann is hoping confidence can soar at Dens Park after their morale-boosting victory at Hamilton Accies.
The Dark Blues lifted themselves off zero points with the 2-0 success at the Hope CBD Stadium at the weekend, courtesy of Andy Boyle and Kharl Madianga goals.
In their run of six straight defeats that opened the Premiership season, questions were raised over the harmony in the dressing-room.
Gaffer Neil, however, says the celebrations at the end of the match show just how together they really are.
“The coming weeks will tell me how high the confidence might soar but it was a happy dressing-room on Saturday,” he said.
“There have been questions asked about the dressing-room and if it is together in these dark times, not getting results, but I think Saturday’s togetherness when we scored and went to the fans makes it clear I have a bunch of boys who just love being in each other’s company.
“There is nothing like getting a win for team spirit.”
The victory came 144 days since their last success in the Premiership with a big chunk of the squad getting their first-ever three points in the top flight of Scottish football.
And the Dens boss insists, despite taking longer than he’d have wished, it was just reward for all their hard work.
“I was really pleased because they work so hard during the week and if we don’t get the rewards it can be quite a deflated dressing-room.
“I told them to enjoy their weekends after the match, I wanted to see them Sunday but I had to give them a day off!”
