Queens Park – Can Spiders continue their impressive start by making it three consecutive wins?

Owen Coyle came in towards the end of last season to take over at Queens Park, and was in a rather peculiar position of coming into a club who were in with a solid chance of promotion. Usually, managers are assuming charge of teams struggling to stay in a league or with little to play for. Instead, Queens Park consolidated their position in the playoffs and then went on an excellent run in the post-season to secure their first ever season in the Championship.

Backed my ambitious owners and with a progressive set-up, Coyle will be hoping to continue the improvement he has overseen to date by what would have seemed an unthinkable challenge for the top-flight.

It has been a really positive start to the League Cup campaign for the Spiders, too. Two wins against lower league opposition may not seem all that impressive, but scoring nine goals and the style of of their wins is why Coyle will be encouraged.
This match and the final game away to Hamilton on Saturday was always going to be their most testing games and with both those opponents also on six points (Hamilton having played three games), they will be crucial in determining who qualifies for the knockout phase.

Dundee Preview – Will Dundee maintain their own 100% record and take control of the section?

There was no hiding the disappointment for Dundee who suffered an immediate return to the Championship having finished bottom of the top-flight last season. A change in manager failed to see them withstand relegation and the club have turned to the experienced Englishman Gary Bowyer as the bid to mount a title challenge in what looks a wide open league.

Before that Dundee will hope to prolong their own winning run in the League Cup. They have dismantled both Hamilton and Stranraer, winning 3-0 in each game. Having reached the quarter-finals 12 months ago, a similar sort of run would be welcome at Dens Park.

There hasn’t been a huge turnover in players over the summer with the majority of last season’s squad still in place. Bowyer will be hopeful his arrival can bring the best out of them, especially as they’re now operating at a lower level. The likes of Niall McGinn and Zak Rudden were January signings whilst Cillian Sheridan missed most of the season due to injury – so there should be no shortage of goals.

Dundee will end their campaign on Saturday with a home game against Forfar, a match they will be looking to win, meaning they know three points here would essentially leave them on the cusp of finishing top.
