Neil McCann’s position as Dundee manager is coming under increased scrutiny after his side lost for the fifth match running on Saturday.
The Dark Blues went down 3-1 at home to Motherwell – and it could have been a lot worse.
The Dee sit bottom of the table without a point and have twice been beaten by lower league opposition in the Betfred Cup.
McCann is correct when he says his team had a similarly bad opening to last season’s campaign before recovering to finish safely in ninth place.
After the weekend’s game he put it down to “a wee lack of confidence”.
He added: “It’s hard to take when you’re not getting results. I’m sure once the new players who’ve come to the club settle in things will be different.”
But fans have began to question whether Neil McCann is the right man for the job and have urged the board to act now ahead of the international break.
Unless he can arrest his side’s worrying form quickly, it is unlikely the Dundee board will want to risk their side’s top-flight status once again.
