Defender grateful to prove his worth

Defender grateful to prove his worth

Defender Barry Douglas is grateful to get his chance following the departure of Paul Dixon to Huddersfield Town over the summer.

The 22-year-old is relishing the opportunity to impress after being kept on the sidelines for most of last season.

"It was a long wait because I came in in my first season and played a few games, but obviously with Dicker's form I never kicked a ball the whole of last year," Douglas told the Dundee Courier. "So I'm excited and looking forward to my opportunity and hopefully I can grasp that.

"Dicker is a great player," he continued. "He set the standard and people are going to compare but I've got belief in my own ability and I think I'll do well as long as I get the opportunity"

Douglas joined the Tangerines from Queen's Park a couple of years ago and managed 28 appearances whilst scoring twice during his first campaign. But he found his chances limited to just thirteen games last term.
