Dundee are struggling this season as they prepare to host St Johnstone at Dens Park on Saturday afternoon.
The hosts have picked up only one point from their opening five games, and currently, sit at the bottom of the league table on the account of a bad goal difference. They have struggled with their defence this season, and have conceded 12 goals in their opening five games – which makes them the worst defence in the league.
Their only point has come through a 1-1 draw with Hibernian, and they have faced defeats against the like of Ross County, Hamilton, Aberdeen and Rangers. In their last fixture, they lost 4-1 at the Gers.
The Saints have slipped up behind the top two in the recent weeks, but they have been impressive this season. They started the season with three consecutive wins, and since then they have drawn against Celtic and Hibernian.
They are currently placed third in the Premiership with 11 points – two points behind Celtic and Aberdeen.
Last season, both sides played each other three times, and every game ended in a home win. The Saints won two of their home games, while Dundee won the remaining fixture.
