Leaving a squad challenging at the top of the table for one struggling at the bottom may seem like a big decision for any young footballer to make.
One that you might need a bit of time to think over.
For Dundee’s on-loan winger Scott Wright, however, a phone call to Dens Park boss Jim McIntyre was all it took to convince him to head down from Aberdeen.
And just two games into his temporary switch to dark blue, the Scotland U/21 international is already convinced his snap decision was the right one.
“I’m loving it here and all the boys are making me feel really welcome. Now it’s a question of getting settled in as quick as I can and just playing football,” he said.
“I had obviously spoken to Derek McInnes and he said to speak to Jim McIntyre before making any decision.
“The gaffer at Aberdeen left it up to me.
“He told me he’d love to have me still up there but if I wanted to go and get games he understood.
“So I spoke to the gaffer here on the phone and I loved everything he had to say. I jumped at the chance to come down here.”
And the 21-year-old sees the draws against Hamilton and Kilmarnock since he arrived as proof this is a squad that can pull away from the relegation zone between now and the end of the season.
“The only frustrating thing for me so far is that we’ve not taken six points out of six from the two games I’ve been involved in but I think all the fans and us as a team can feel from those performances that we are building momentum.
“In the Hamilton game it was a case of everyone trying to get used to each other. A lot of us had only come in right before the deadline and we only really had one training session together.
“It was about trying to get to know everyone’s games, their personalities. I think we are all starting to gel now and you can see that on the pitch.
“Not having a game last weekend because we’re out of the cup has given us a bit more time to work on that. That gives us a better picture going into the game against Livingston this weekend.”
Today’s trip to the Tony Macaroni Arena to face Livingston is a meeting with a team who have taken the Premiership by storm this term but have been struggling for a win of late.
Since thumping Hearts 5-0 in mid-December, Gary Holt’s team have not won in eight outings. Wright does not see that as a sign this could be an easy 90 minutes for Dundee.
“We have to treat it that every game from now on is going to be a big game for us and this will be.
“We know how Livi will be and they will work hard but all we can do is just prepare the way we want to and work on how we can play. Hopefully, that will be enough.
“They haven’t won in a few games but it’s a testimony to Livi how many points they have. They started the season so well.”
Today, of course, will see Dundee asked to play on Livi’s much-criticised plastic pitch.
The debate over their use has surfaced again this week via the PFA canvassing their members for views on them. While Wright is very much in the camp that prefers grass surfaces, the artificial surface is not something he’s going to gripe about.
“All we can do is get on with it and we are not going to use the pitch as an excuse,” he added.
“Playing in Scotland, you get used to them.
“However, I think having everyone playing on grass is something that would benefit the top league.
“You prepare for a team each week but, for these games, you also have to prepare for the pitch as well.
“All we can do as players is give our opinion about them.”
