Marcus Haber doesn’t see any reason why Dundee can’t get a result against Rangers at Ibrox.
The Dark Blues head to Govan in encouraging mood after recent performances have brought them victories against Hamilton and Motherwell.
“There is definite belief in the team and we know anyone can beat anyone in this league,” said Haber.
“We are coming off two wins, so we’ve no reason not to feel that way.”
The former St Johnstone hitman has played a few times against Rangers, so knows what to expect this afternoon and is looking forward to the game.
“I’m excited about going to Ibrox.
“It’s been a while since I played there but it will be a good atmosphere and a tough game.
“I think I drew a few times when I played for St Johnstone but I don’t think I’ve ever won, so that will be the goal.”
The centre-forward believes keeping Rangers at bay may be the key to a rare Dundee win when they enter the Ibrox arena on league duty for the first time since 2005.
“I think if we focus on keeping a clean sheet first and foremost then we will always be in the game and have a chance of winning.
“We want to keep our shape early, stay compact and make it difficult for them to play.
“As a team we have been difficult to break down the last few weeks and away from home you have to be organised.”
Inevitably at Ibrox, there will be lengthy spells in the game where the hosts have the ball and the Canadian feels a big part of his game will be retaining possession when Dundee get it.
“Rangers are a possession-based team, so there will be plenty of periods when we don’t have the ball.
“When it does come up to me, it is important it sticks to get the team up the park.”
Following the international break, Haber wants to maintain the momentum the Dark Blues had built before the enforced lay-off.
“We are looking to build on our last two performances, as everyone is confident at the moment and trusts each other.”
It would be easy for Dundee to look back at recent history and be fearful of results that have been achieved at Ibrox over the past decade.
However, the centre-forward isn’t interested in any of that.
He added: “History isn’t something on my mind. I just approach every game the same way — they are all important.
“Away from home it’s going to be a grind but we will go into the game the same as we have done the past few weeks.”
He has a similar mentality when looking at the table.
If results go the right way, Paul Hartley’s men may get closer to the top six but Haber plays down that aspect.
“We will take one week at a time and take every game as it comes. We’re not going to get ahead of ourselves.
“We know where we are as a group and know how we want to play, so we will just focus on the game ahead.”
Wise words from the man who never got a rest last week as he was on international duty for Canada in South Korea.
“I always look forward to representing my country and I got 90 minutes, so I’m happy with that.
“You always want to play and it was a good experience going to South Korea.”
