After seven matches in a row between the sticks, Jack Hamilton seems to be Dundee’s undisputed No 1.
Boss Jim McIntyre, however, insists it’s been a tough decision before each game whether to stick with Hamilton or go with rival Elliott Parish.
Parish has only featured once since Jim took the reins in the middle of October, a painful 4-0 defeat at Livingston that kicked off the new manager’s time at the club.
With that result in mind and Hamilton impressing in recent weeks, you’d be forgiven for thinking Parish had had his chance.
However, Jim is delighted to have a tough decision to agonise over each week with two good goalies to choose from – even if he admits Hamilton has shown his best form of the season recently.
The Dens gaffer said: “Like any new player Jack’s probably taken a wee while to settle in at the club.
“Both goalkeepers have been good, it’s been a close call to see who plays because both train really well and both are great lads.
“I thought last week against Hamilton was Jack’s strongest game in everything he did.
“People notice saves but there was a through ball where he was right off his line and his starting position was good and overall he was switched on.
“You need to be at this level or you get punished.”
He added: “I don’t think Jack had too many saves to make on Sunday against Rangers but he came and claimed a few crosses which helped out his back four.”
