St Mirren to win and both teams to score is 9/2. 

Match preview

Can Dundee climb off the bottom of the table?

On Saturday, the Dark Blues held Motherwell to a 1-1 draw at Fir Park, taking an early lead through Paul McMullan.

So, Mark McGhee is still winless since taking over as manager, losing to Celtic and Livingston before back-to-back draws with Hibs and Motherwell.

However, the Dee remain at the foot of the table, one point behind St Johnstone with this as Dundee's game in hand.

Can they make that game in hand count?

St Mirren meanwhile are looking to climb into the top six before the split.

On Saturday, the Buddies were beaten 1-0 in the Highlands by Ross County, conceding a penalty just after half time at Victoria Park.

So, Stephen Robinson has not made the ideal start to life in Paisley, losing all three games after defeats to Hearts and then Celtic.

As a result, the Saints are down in ninth, just three points below the three clubs directly above them.

Will there be a winner at Dens Park?

Dundee team news

Mark McGhee's squad was hit by a mini-Covid outbreak at the weekend with Zak Rudden and Luke McCowan missing that game and probably this one.

They were also without Charlie Adam, Niall McGinn, Ian Lawlor, Adam Legzdins, Danny Mullen, Cillian Sheridan, Paul McGowan and Christie Elliott due to injury.

So, 20 year old Harry Sharp was in goal and Dundee named just five substitute.

It's unknown who, if anyone, will be back for this one and, playing again in a short period, could stretch this depleted squad too far.

St Mirren team news

Stephen Robinson's only concern is the fact he's still looking for his first win, first point or even first goal a Saints' boss.

Connor Ronan is still suspended after being sent off against Hearts; this is the third of his three-match ban.

Under Robinson, they've switched to a back five with Charles Dunne alongside Joe Shaughnessy and captain Conor McCarthy.

Eamonn Brophy is fit again and could start, in place of January signing Alex Greive.
