John Brown: Dundee interim boss insists his side are fearless ahead of facing th

Dundee looked set for their 20th defeat of their SPL campaign after Steven MacLean and Dave Mackay scored either side of John Baird's reply, but substitute Mark Stewart struck in the last minute to earn a point for Brown's 10-man team.

Despite currently sitting bottom of the SPL, interim boss Brown says his side will head into their William Hill Scottish Cup quarter-final against city rivals Dundee United on Sunday with a fearless attitude.

"We're not frightened of anybody. United have got a great record. They have got a good team with some excellent players," he said.

"But it's 11 v 11, isn't it?

"This result gives us a good platform. We have got a few problems like Gary Harkins being cup-tied.

"I've come here to assess all of the players from here until the end of the season and hopefully put my hat in the ring with all the other applications to get the job.

"I can't criticise the boys one bit for application and some of our football was excellent."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
