    After last night’s results, Dundee will remain a Premiership club while Inverness still have a slight chance to reach the play-off spot if they can do something they haven’t done all year and win twice in a row.

    The Dark Blues go into their last home match of the season against Inverness with no injury worries despite both Hateley and Gomes being substituted on Saturday. Both are expected to be fit for tonight.

    Neil said: “There are a couple of bumps and bruises from Saturday but everybody will be fine.

    “Gomis should be fine. Hateley has a dead leg but the good news it’s not a muscle injury, so it’s just a matter of it loosening it up.

    “I spoke to the physios and it’s maybe an extra day to turn him around and, hopefully, by tomorrow he’s good to go again.”

    Inverness will be missing Carl Tremarco, Aaron Doran Josh Meekings and Goalkeeper Owain Fon Williams while it remains to be seen if Alex Fisher will make it. The striker suffered a mild concussion against Kilmarnock.

    Current Head to Head League Record

    Played: 22 Won: 2 Drawn: 11 Lost: 9 GF: 25 GA: 39

    Our current head to head record against the Highlanders doesn’t exactly make for good reading and seeing as how they will likely be plying their trade in the Championship next season, it may be a while before we can improve on it.

    Players View: Craig Wighton

    "When we were on our bad run and went a goal down, the heads went down and the fans were rightly frustrated.

    "But, at the weekend, when we went a goal down, nobody panicked and everyone felt we would come back into the game and obviously, we've done that and probably should have gone on to win it.

    "It is confidence. The manager has given us belief and put confidence in us and as a squad everyone has come together and you can see that in the performances.

    "Since the new manager has come in, the attitude has changed and we have got that belief and you can see that in performances.

    "I don't think anyone can fault the attitude and effort over the last three games.

    "On our day, I think we can beat every team because we have a good group of players here.

    "We have looked solid at the back and going forward we have players who can hurt teams."

    Match Facts

    Dundee have only won twice in the League against Caley. Both of these came at Dens.

    Caley have found the net against Dundee in the last 10 games.

    Dundee haven’t lost to Caley in the last three matches at Dens (W2, D1)

    If Inverness can’t beat Dundee, they will be relegated at Dens.

    A Dundee will win mean it’s the first time the Dee have won back to back home victories against Caley.
