Dundee striker Danny Mullen is hopeful that his performance as a second-half substitute against Morton on Saturday will have impressed James McPake that it earns Mullen a recall to the starting line-up for this evening’s game against Inverness.

Mullen replaced Osman Sow in the second-half of the 2-2 draw, and made a big impact on the game. He set up Jason Cummings’ goal, scored a goal himself and also hit the post. He was vital in helping Dundee earn a point from the game.

Mullen hopes that he has provided McPake with a selection ‘headache’ after impressing as a sub.

“Hopefully I’ve done that”

“I found myself on the bench again this week. Every time I come on the pitch I just try to give the manager a bit of a headache for the next game coming up, and hopefully I’ve done that this week” he said.

Mullen has been impressed with fellow striker Jason Cummings’ performances since he arrived at Dens Park. He is hoping that the duo can form a strike partnership if possible.

“A good partnership”

“Whatever the manager decides to do I’ll be ready. If it is me and Jason I’ll be looking forward to it. But I think it would be a good partnership.

“I think we’d be able to read each other well, I was winning some flick-ons for him, and he finished it well, so we’ll just need to wait and see” Mullen stated.

Dundee boss James McPake must be strongly considering starting the duo against Inverness, as the duo worked well against Morton.
