The Taysiders are bottom of the table, three points adrift of safety.

Dundee striker Kenny Miller believes the visit of Hamilton on Wednesday night is a "must-win" fixture for the Taysiders.

Following four straight defeats after the appointment of Jim McIntyre as boss, the Dark Blues have shown signs of revival with draws in their last two Ladbrokes Premiership matches against St Mirren and Hibernian.

However, they remain at the bottom of the table, three points behind the Buddies and eight behind Accies.

The Lanarkshire side's 3-1 victory over St Mirren on Saturday led Miller to stress the importance of Wednesday's game.

The 38-year-old said: "There has been two positive performances that could have turned a point into three.

"So it is important against a team around us that we don't get cut too much adrift. So three points, it kind of falls into the category of a must-win game for us.

"It is important that we build on what we have been doing of late, particularly the St Mirren and Hibs games.

"If we keep playing at the same intensity and tempo that we have done in the last few games then I don't think that win will be too far away and hopefully it will be on Wednesday night.

"It is an opportunity to close that gap on Hamilton with a game in hand. It gets you back into the mix. We need to make sure we do the right things and give ourselves the best possible chance to win a game.

"I am looking forward to the game. It is a big month, there are a lot of games and a lot of points up for grabs so hopefully this can be the start of us turning the corner and climbing the table.

"There are seven games between now and the shutdown. Tough games. It is one game at a time but we need to stay in touch.

"It is imperative that we are not too far adrift come January and the shutdown."
