Dundee United manager Csaba Laszlo insists it is important to win their match against Ross County on Saturday, not only for the three points, but because it is at home.
United have struggled somewhat at Tannadice this season after an opening-day 3-2 loss to Dunfermline and a 1-1 draw with Morton a fortnight ago sandwiching their only victory – a 3-1 success against Partick Thistle.
Csaba is hoping that will change when the Staggies come calling at the weekend.
“Our performances at Tannadice have not been so fantastic,” Csaba said.
“We lost the first game against Dunfermline, beat Partick Thistle and then dropped two points against Morton.
“So it is important that we improve that and it’s time to win again.”
As they push for promotion, the Terrors have a crucial run ahead of them so early in the season.
Trips to Ayr United and Partick follow Saturday’s clash before Inverness arrive at Tannadice.
And Csaba hopes their home ground is bouncing with fans for the matches against the Highland sides.
“We need the fans behind us,” he added.
“The players do not play just for themselves, they play for Dundee United as a whole and that includes the supporters.
“Sometimes you have good days and sometimes you have bad days but I know this team will do everything for the club.
“After the Morton game I was sad and not satisfied with the result but I was satisfied the players fought right to the end.
“I think the fans can recognise that they have a team on the pitch that will fight for results. Dundee United will always be a big club with tradition and we have a wish to be in a different league.”
