Robinson praised 'talented' Turnbull after winning goal
The Motherwell teenager found the net for the second successive game.
Motherwell manager Stephen Robinson watched David Turnbull score the winner for his side and said the teenager was "a massive talent".
The 19-year-old scored his first senior goal on Wednesday against St Mirren and then fired in the only goal of the game against Dundee on Saturday to earn his side three points.
"He's a talented boy," Robinson said after Turnbull's 25-yard strike.
"We won't get too carried away yet, he is still in the very early stages of his career. But he has a massive talent. He needs to be managed, as all young boys do, and we have a few more to come as well.
"I don't think there was ever any doubt about his temperament, he is so unfazed by things.
"Sometimes when things aren't going well, the younger boys are very unaffected by it. The older boys worry a little bit more because they have been part of it and know the consequences. David has gone in with a freedom, played with a freedom."
The goal inflicted the fourth defeat in four games on Dundee boss Jim McIntyre but although his side remain bottom of the table and haven't scored since October 6, he said he saw encouraging signs.
"That's a big improvement on the last three games," he said. "What let us down was our final ball. We got into some great positions, put a lot of crosses in but we didn't have many with a lot of quality on show.
"I thought we defended stoutly at times, far far better than it's been, up against a side that like to put a lot of balls into the box as well. We had a right go at it at the end but Motherwell defended well."
