first_imgDundee manger Paul Hartley says his side deserved their win but warned it will count for nothing if they lack fight in their coming games.The Dark Blues ended their winless run at New Douglas Park, claiming a 1-0 win over Hamilton Accies with Paul McGowan’s goal proving the difference.Hartley pointed out how he now expects Dundee to reach these levels from now until the end of the season.“That’s the minimum we expect from them now, the players know that, they’re a great bunch of players to work with – they’re honest, and just haven’t had the results,” he said. “That was a different Dundee and we’re going to be looking for that between now and the end of the season. We have to fight for every result. We might not always win, but as long as I see on the pitch what I saw there I’ll be happy.“I’m delighted for the players – we deserved that, we fought, we stuck together and I’m pleased for the group.“We had a good week, in terms of speaking, and some good stuff on the training pitch. We were all honest with each other, said we’re going to fix it together, and we’re going to fight every week, and every day in training – I don’t mean punches, but to fight together and show a real desire and attitude.“That was a different Dundee team, a team that wanted it, the attitude was great, and all over the pitch, in every department, we deserved that.”last_img read more
