Barry Smith expects Dundee to maintain their level of performance going into their match with SPL leaders Motherwell.
The Dark Blues struggled to adapt to life in the top flight, losing three of their first four games, before picking up a 1-0 win at Hearts in their last outing.
Smith has had the international break to prepare his side for another tilt at picking up vital points in the fight against relegation and wants his team to gain a positive home result.
“Motherwell are sitting top of the league so all credit to them,” Smith told the Daily Record.
“They had a great result in beating Inverness 4-1 in their last game so it’s guaranteed they’ll come up on a high.
“But we’re at home and we’ve got to maintain the performance levels.
“We have to try to take the positives, like keeping a clean sheet at Tynecastle, into this one so we can hopefully do the same again.”
