Dundee manager Paul Hartley saw the positives despite a heartbreaking 1-0 defeat to Rangers at Ibrox.
The Dark Blues looked set to have frustrated Mark Warburton’s side, but for a goal in the dying seconds meant all three points stayed in Glasgow.
A glancing Harry Forrester header in the 92nd minute was agonisingly just out of Scott Bain’s grasp.
For Dundee, the pain of conceding the late goal was exacerbated by the fact it sent them back to the foot of the table after consecutive wins over Hamilton and Motherwell had lifted them off.
But manager Paul Hartley said: “We’re not too worried about that if we keep performing like that. We have shown over the last month that we’re a different team now.
“We’ve got some good games coming up that we can get some points from, but we have got to keep working like that and work even harder.”
Defender Darren O’Dea also feels Dundee are on the right track.
“As a team we’re a different animal than we were a few weeks ago,” the Irishman said. “We look so solid, we don’t look like we are going to concede, and we had our chances.
“When we were on a bad run, the problem wasn’t losing to Celtic and Hearts, it was not beating the teams around us. We have Inverness next week who are doing well at the minute, but they are the games we are expected to win.”
