Kenny Miller believes Jim McIntyre is closing in on his first win as Dundee boss following the 1-1 Premiership draw with fellow strugglers St Mirren on Saturday.
McIntyre is still looking for his first win after five matches in charge and Dundee are still at the bottom of the table, a point behind the Paisley side but Miller, 38, believes three points are coming soon.
He said: “If we play like Saturday then absolutely.
“That’s the kind of performance we’ve been working for in the last few weeks. It’s the performance the manager has been demanding in training.
“We’re hoping that we’re starting to see the benefits of the work we’ve been putting in at training Monday to Friday.
“If we get to those levels every week then I think we’ll start winning a lot more games.”
Miller revealed McIntyre has worked a lot on basics since he took over from Neil McCann.
“You can see by the way we’re playing – we’re 4-4-2, everybody knows their jobs,” he added.
“There’s a lot of basic stuff getting put in, fundamentals of set-plays, organisation.
“It’s quite simple stuff.”
