Dundee manager Neil McCann said he is "buzzing" for Elliot Parish after seeing the goalkeeper grasp his first-team opportunity with a string of impressive performances.

Parish has made the most of his opportunity after Scott Bain was sidelined for a disciplinary matter; conceding just once in three games.

"Elliot Parish has come in and I have to say - brilliant," said McCann.

"He has given us so much confidence at the back with two clean sheets."

McCann added: "I am buzzing for him because he waited a long time to get in."

Since making his debut in a 2-1 defeat to Hibernian last month, Parish has helped Dundee pick up seven points out of nine.

The 27-year-old Englishman's second clean sheet came in Saturday's 2-0 victory at Ross County - Dundee's first away win of the campaign - and boss McCann was quick to laud Parish for his contributions.

"That is the first clean sheet for us, up here, and our away form has been poor."

Dundee have given a trial to Jeremy Malherbe, the 26-year-old who had spells with Nancy, Grenoble, Gap Hautes Alpes, Reims and Roeselare and is a free agent after leaving Dinamo Brest.

However, despite McCann saying the Frenchman had impressed, Calum Ferie was again on the bench for the win over Ross County with no news of a contract for the trialist.
