Dundee’s Paul McMullan isn’t expecting this afternoon’s game against Morton to be the prettiest game of football. However, he is willing to take that as long as Dundee get back to winning ways.

The Dens Park side have not won any of their last three games, and are looking for a win to get their top four ambitions back on track.

Looking to get back to winning ways

For that to happen, McMullan says that Dundee may have to embrace ‘the ugly side’ of the game.

“I don’t think it’s going to be particularly pretty, I don’t think their pitch is in great nick, I don’t think anybody’s pitch to be honest at the moment is in great nick” he said.

“I don’t think it’s going to be beautiful football. We’re just going to have to get down there, do the ugly side, and hopefully can steal a couple of goals somewhere and win” McMullan mused.

Had a decent start to Dens Park career

The former Dundee United star has personally made a good start to his Dundee career. He has one assist in two appearances. However, he would rather that the team had won those games, rather than achieve any personal gains.

“Relatively happy (with his performances), setting up chances, got a couple of assists. But it doesn’t really mean anything when you’ve lost both games.

“I’d rather I wasn’t contributing anything, and we were winning 1-0 with an own goal. The more I try and contribute the better chance we’ve got of winning the games, so that’s what I’ve got to try and do” McMullan concluded.
