The Dark Blues
  • League Preview: Kilmarnock

    Dundee welcome high-flying Kilmarnock to Dens Park this Saturday as the Dark Blues hope to build on last weeks win away to Hamilton and adding more points on board.

    After six straight defeats in the league, Dundee finally managed to pick up a win with a 2-0 victory away to Hamilton. The Dee ill be hoping that last Saturdays result will be a turning point for the team as they hope to lift themselves from the foot of the table.

    The Dark Blues may have rode their luck in the second half but they still managed to see out the game with a clean sheet and a goal in either half which will boost the confidence of the squad.

    Dundee will also have Roarie Deacon and Paul McGowan back for this tie which will give Neil McCann an welcomed headache of having options from the bench if he sticks to the same team from Saturday. Deacon made his first appearance this season when he came on as a substitute in the Hamilton victory and contributed for the second. 

    Kenny Miller will also be available after he finished serving his two-match suspension.

    Kilmarnock are our next opponents and the Ayrshire team come to Dens on the back of a fine start to their season which has seen them collect thirteen points and sitting in fourth position in the league. 

    With victories over teams such as Aberdeen and Celtic already and ex Dee Greg Stewart rekindling the form that he produced while at Dens, Killie will be hoping to come to Dundee to make it three wins on the trot and claiming second place in the table.

    Last Meeting: Kilmarnock 3-2 Dundee 13/02/18

    Our last meeting with Kilmarnock came all the way back in February. Both teams were just a few points away from the play-off spot so a win for either would see a little breathing space between them and Partick Thistle.

    Killie drew first blood in the opening minutes when Eamonn Brophy netted the opener but Dundee would draw level on the half hour mark when Sofien Moussa slotted home from the penalty spot.

    The second half would have much more drama.

    Debutant Steven Caulker headed Dundee in front from a Roarie Deacon corner and then Gary Dicker was given his second yellow card of the game that seen Kilmarnock reduced to ten-men.There was chances for both sides but despite Dundee having the man advantage, it would be Killie that would see out the game as the winners.

    Kris Boyd curled home the equaliser then with minutes to go, Iain Wilson ran around 40-yards before banging home the winner despite protests of a foul in the build up to his winner for Kilmarnock's seventh consecutive win at home.

      Steven McLean pointed to the spot after Jordan Jones went down in the Dundee box in the second half but video footage shows that no contact was made by Cammy Kerr and it was an incorrect decision.

      "We are told to watch our conduct at the side of the pitch, and it's a very emotional game we are involved in, management. We are told about our comments, how we conduct ourselves against the fourth (official), against the assistant, and the referee.
      "Referees, I am told, have to be certain it's a penalty. You can't make that decision if you're not certain.
      "And I've just watched it and there's no contact. It's a joke of a decision and it's a pivotal moment in the match, because again we have got to come from behind.
      "It's changed the whole outcome of that game, because it's asked us questions against a very, very structured, well-organised side under Steve Clarke. And I'm not taking anything away from them, they defended well. But it helps their cause, and they set up on the counter-attack.
      "But the decision is a disgrace and it's really hard right now to control my emotions.
      "I went over to Steven after the game and told him that he has to be sure. He just looked at me and I said he can't be sure to make that decision. Because I am looking at that from 50-60 yards away and I can see Jordan has gone down.
      "Now players can take a good touch in the box and they are waiting on contact, minimal contact, and they will go down. It doesn't take a lot. There is no contact.
      "The defining point for me is he told boys in my team that he has taken a dive. And that's pretty sore to take.
      "I asked the boy coming off himself. He just shook my hand, I shook his hand and asked him if he'd gone down, and he didn't answer me. But I don't know if he'd want to answer a manager.
      "It's really sore just now and I've told the boys I feel sorry for them because it's a horrible position to be in."

      The Dark  Blues lose at home at home against Kilmarnock today.
      Dundee opened the scoring in the 10th minute when Nabi beat a few players to put the ball into the back of the net.
      Kilmarnock scored against the run of play, a Killie cross hit the heel of the Dundee defender  and over the top of Parish. There was nothing both players could have done for that.
      Kilmarnock went 2 ahead after Cammy Kerr was judged to have brought down Jordan Jones  in the box. Looked like a dive to me, but I wasn't the match official. Brophy stepped up and placed the spot kick past Parish.
      Kilmarnock were given a second penalty when Chris Burke was pushed by C Miller. ExDee Stewart stepped up but Parish pulled of a wonderful save to keep the scoreline down.
      In all honesty, Dundee huffed and puffed but never looked like scoring after that point.

      Dundee were held to a 1 - 1 draw by the visitors to Dens Park Kilmarnock.

      Kris Boyd opened the scoring within the first 10 minutes, thanks to some terrible defending which let Scott Bain on a one to one with the veteran striker who slotted past Bain and into the empty net.

      Kevin Holt made it 1 - 1 in the 27th minute as he swept the ball past three oncoming Kille players.

      Dundee draw again as Kilmarnock hold firm

      Dundee remain without a home win in the Ladbrokes Scottish Premiership as they were held to a third consecutive draw by Kilmarnock.

      Paul Hartley's side raced into an early lead through Faissal El Bakhtaoui after seven minutes before Souleymane Coulibaly's stunning overhead equaliser on 32 minutes levelled matters.
