Dundee Preview – Can inconsistent Dark Blues get a result that would take them above their opponents?

James McPake knows this is entering into a critical part of the season for his Dundee team but also his future in general. The Dens Park club sit fourth coming into this game – one of three teams who are on 30 points, all of whom occupy the playoff spots. With a further four teams sitting no more than five points behind the race to finish in the top four is going to go to the wire.

For a club the size of Dundee, and with this being their second season in the division, anything less than promotion would be seen as failure and likely see a change in manager.


Our betting prediction:
Under 2.5 goals

(odds taken 2000 GMT, Wednesday 25 March)
Dundee have been inconsistent all season and that shows no sign of changing. Their last nine games have seen three wins, two draws and four defeats. A continuation of that form between now and the end of the season may well be enough but McPake will be hoping to lean on his team’s good form at Dens Park.
Defeat to Ayr United in their most recent home game was only Dundee’s second home loss of the season. They’ve won six of their 10 matches at Dens Park in the Championship so far but have only three left.

Dunfermilne Preview – Are Dunfermilne able to put their dismal away form behind them for what would be a vital three points?

Dunfermilne come into this game knowing that they have a game in hand over their two main rivals for the top four, namely Raith Rovers and Saturday’s opponents. Of course, that provides an opportunity for them to really take a hold and cement their place in the playoffs with a win. Stevie Crawford will be looking to pick his players up from their penalty shootout defeat in the Scottish Cup – a match that extended their dismal away record this season.

The Pars have not won an away game since the end of November – making it a run of eight matches without success on their travels. Their last (and to date only) away win in the league was against Alloa back in October.

Dunfermilne are also the lowest scorers of the top four and you have to go down to seventh placed Ayr to find a team who have scored fewer. It means they are going to have to lean on their defensive record which is the best in the whole of the division – conceding 20 goals in their 19 matches.

Since conceding three goals on their last visit to Dens Park, Dunfermilne have conceded four goals in their following five away games.

Dundee vs Dunfermilne Betting Advice

Every game left between now and the regular season is going to have an impact on the top four and the teams who sit in those three playoff positions. The fact these teams also face each other at East End Park

The first meeting between the two this season was a enthralling 3-3 draw just before Christmas – the match saw an amazing comeback from Dunfermilne who were 3-0 down only to score three in the last 15 minutes.


Key Facts – Dundee vs Dunfermilne Betting Tip

  • Norway have lost just one of their last 20 home matches over the course of 90 minutes
  • Despite being in the top four four much of the season Dunfermilne have won only one away game in the league
  • The teams drew 3-3 when they last face each other, at Dens Park back in December


You only have to look at their respective records to see that Dundee are strong at home whilst Dunfermilne struggle on the road. The hosts should have taken the win in their last meeting but I’m taking to get a vital three points this time around.
