The Dark Blues go into this weekend clash against Hamilton on the back of 6 consecutive league defeats knowing this could be the make of break of Neil McCann's tenure at Dens Park.
The last time Dundee played Hamilton away from home in the league was 27th January 2018 and the Dark Blues headed home with the 3 points. A-Jay Leitch-Smith scored in the 98th minute as Dundee came from behind to secure an important win in a rainy wind soaked afternoon at the SuperSeal Stadium.
Hamilton opened the scoring in the just two minutes, when Mark O'Hara sliced the ball into his own net from a couple of yards out. Hamilton went down to 10 men in the 74th minute after David Templeton received a second yellow card. Templeton was dismissed by referee Kevin Clancy after receiving his second yellow card for a trip on Allan, and Dundee took full advantage.
The Dark Blues equalised in the 77th minute. Matty Hanvey who had just replaced El Bakhtaoui on the 70th minute mark scored his first senior goal for the club. Henvey scored from close range after a lovely delivery from midfielder Scott Allan.
The visitors continued to pile on the pressure and were looking to to take advantage of the 10 man Hamilton, with both Moussa and Henvey coming close.
Dundee took full advantage when Hamiton went down to 9 men as Darian Mackinnon was being treated for a leg injury and it was then that Dundee struck.
Glen Kamara tried his luck from distance and Leitch-Smith put his foot out and his deflection was enough to see the ball past woods to snatch a victory.
Dundee secured their Premier league status back in May after the Dark Blues came out on top At Dens Park with a 1 - 0 victory against the Accies. Kevin Holt fired the hosts' opener following Craig Wighton's cut-back and The Dundee fans took great delight in watching Parish save Dougie Imrie's spot-kick.
Dundee have yet to secure a league victory or even a point for that matter. With consecutive defeats the talk of is of how long will Neil McCann remain in charge if the dark blues failed to pick up a win at the Hope CBD Stadium.
Roadie Deacon looks set to make his long awaited comeback but will more than likely have to settle for a place on the bench.
Benjamin Kallman looks set to play tomorrow despite coming off injured last week while the club are hoping that Josh Meekings and Sofien Moussa will be fit to make the trip.
Kharl Madianga and Calvin Miller look set to miss out and will be joined by Kenny Miller who is serving the last game of his suspension.
