Dundee can’t seem to get out of their slump, and they should consider themselves lucky that there are two worse sides in the league. Can the Dark Blues turn around their form when they host St Johnstone at Dens Park on Saturday afternoon?
Dundee are without a win in their last six games, and they suffered a 4-0 defeat at Rangers in their last fixture. As things stand, the Dee find themselves in the tenth spot with 30 points. With five games left to play in the season, Dundee only have a four-point lead on the bottom two. Hence, the hosts are far from secure, and it could go right down to the wire for them.
Meanwhile, the Saints find themselves in a rather comfortable position ahead of the trip to Dundee. The visitors sit in the eighth spot with 38 points, meaning they a 12-point lead on the bottom two sides. Overall, it has been a disappointing season for the Saints, but they have done enough to secure their top-level status.
St Johnstone have drawn three of their last four games, and in their last fixture, they played a goalless draw at home against Motherwell. These two sides faced each other last month on the same ground, and the Saints claimed an emphatic 4-0 win in the game. However, Dundee had won first two league meetings between these two sides this season.
