Dundee know that anything other than a win here and they will be back playing Championship football. Hibernian lie in wait, hoping to chase down Livingston in seventh place.

Dundee – Can Dundee end their run of 11 league games without a win?

The curtain is almost closing on Dundee’s stay in the Premiership. Saturday’s defeat away to St Mirren means that Mark McGhee’s team now have to win both of their remaining matches, hope St Johnstone fail to pick up another point in their last two games, and that there is a seven goal swing in the process. Considering this is a team who have not won a league game since February, you don’t hold out much hope for them.

McGhee’s still yet to taste victory since taking over as Dundee manager and despite his best motivational efforts, the Dens Park club are going to be playing in the second tier once again next season.


Our betting prediction
1-1 Correct Score
(odds taken 2000 GMT, Wednesday 27 April)
No team has won fewer games overall or conceded as many goals as Dundee. It’s a recipe with only one outcome, despite them scoring more goals than second bottom St Johnstone. Their last home win was back on the 1st of December when 1-0 against the Perth club, they have taken only four points from a possible 30 since then and it is really now about salvaging some pride in the games they have left.
If it goes as expected and relegation is confirmed some time this week, then it is likely going to be the final game at Dens Park for a number of these players, including captain Charlie Adam who was at fault for the first goal against St Mirren on Saturday.

Hibernian Preview – Are Hibs set for a win and to condemn hosts to an immediate return to the Championship?

Relegation may never have been on the cards for Hibs but there’s no getting away from how disappointing the season has been. The biggest indicator of that is the fact they have sacked two managers during the campaign with both Jack Ross and Shaun Maloney failing to find the level of form the board are looking for.

Expectations were set last season with a third place finish and as their best possible placing this time is seventh, it shows just how far they have fallen and the size of job for whoever is appointed as the permanent manager over the summer.

David Gray has been in interim charge since Maloney was sacked last month. It has been a mixed response with a win, a loss and most recently a draw in the three games he’s overseen so far. Saturday’s 1-1 draw against Aberdeen means they still sit three points behind seventh placed Livingston. It’s conceivable they could yet finish 10th in what is a congested part of the table.

Their away form has been a big concern with just one win in eight matches on the road in 2022, that coming away to St Mirren in a 1-0 success.

Dundee vs Hibernian Betting Advice

Although there is the slimmest of chances that Dundee could yet avoid automatic relegation, there will be plenty of supporters on both sides who are just willing this season to end. It has been a massive disappointment for both and they can hope for better in the coming months.

This will be the third meeting between the teams at Dens Park this season and the two previous meetings here ended in draws. Hibs took the spoils in the only Easter Road clash.


Key Facts –  Dundee vs Hibernian Betting Tip

  • Dundee have to win both remaining matches and hope St Johnstone fail to pick up another point to have any chance of survival
  • Hibs’ last remaining objective of a disappointing season is to finish seventh and best of the bottom half
  • Both of the meetings at Dens Park between the clubs this season, have ended in draws (0-0 and 2-2)


A team who don’t win at home against a team who rarely win on the road doesn’t instil much confidence either way. I like under 2.5 goals in this one instead. 10 of Hibs’ last 14 away games have finished with two or less goals in them and it could be another low-scoring affair in this one.
