    Tayside Police are giving a warning regarding road closures ahead of tonight's cup clash against Celtic.

    The Dark Blues are at home against Celtic in tonight's Betfred cup clash and Scottish Poilce have announced road closures around Dens park.

    Dens Road will be closed southbound from the Provost Road.


    All supporters buses should arrive at Dens Park via Clepington Road, Arklay Street, Fairbairn Street and Neish Street to avoid the roadworks.

    Scottish Police have issued a warning to Fans from both set of fans travelling to the game, that they face banning orders is they are to misbehave before, during or after the game.

    Match commander Chief Inspector Mike Whitford stated: “We expect to welcome a large crowd to Dens this evening for the match, which kicks off at 7.45pm.

    With this being an evening kick off, I want to remind supporters that it is an offence to try to enter the stadium in possession of alcohol or whilst drunk and this will be strictly enforced by Police and stewards on duty.

    We will also enforce legislation in respect of pyrotechnics, and supporters may be searched prior to entering the ground.

    Please remember that as well as being refused entry to the match you may be arrested and, where appropriate offences are detected, we will actively seek football banning orders.

    I know that the majority of fans will bring their families and friends with them to enjoy the football and I would ask you to remember that Police officers and stewards will be in and around the football stadium in order that you can watch the match in a safe environment.

    Anti-social behaviour will not be tolerated and our officers will also be visiting licensed premises before, during and after the match to maintain the safety of patrons, and will ensure that local residents experience as little disruption as possible.

    Please assist us in ensuring this is a fantastic sporting occasion for all.”
