Dundee manager Jim McIntyre wants his side to pepper the St Mirren goal this Saturday as he bids for his first victory as manager.
The Dens boss has lost his opening four games but knows how important a result against fellow-strugglers St Mirren will be if they are to avoid the drop.
And to do that he’s given them “the freedom to pull the trigger” in and around the area to end their 440-minute goal drought.
In their last two fixtures, a 1-0 loss at Motherwell and 5-0 home defeat to Celtic, the Dark Blues only managed two shots at goal with none on target.
That’s a statistic Jim wants to change.
He said: “For me, there has to be a bit more responsibility.
“I am giving them the freedom to pull the trigger but sometimes when you are on a run like this, they are maybe a wee bit tentative rather than take the risk.
“They need to have the courage to take the risk, to play the risky pass and in the last third of the field, express themselves and go show their quality.
“That’s the message I have been giving them – you have quality, don’t be safe but try to make something happen.
“I want more crosses into the box.
“We have to put teams under pressure. We have to get it wide, into the box and that’s not saying just lump it up the park.
“We have good footballers, so play when it’s on to play.
“But there is a way we want to play and it’s to get it into the wider areas and have those one-v-one situations to really put back fours under pressure.
“If we can do that and make sure we have four or five hitting the box then we can cause them problems.”
