  1. 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.

  3. We spoke to Russell Crombie of the On Team In Ayrshire Podcast and you can read what he had to say below. Your part of the ‘One Team in Ayrshire’ podcast. When did that start up and how did you get involved? The show started a few years ago, when myself and Jamie McDougall realised there might be an appetite for greater analayis on Kilmarnock's matches. Things have petered off lately with work and university commitments, but we're hoping to get back up and running soon. There was pressure from the support for Michael Johnston to resign and he finally did in May this year. Without knowing the full scenario, how has the club been doing without him involved now? The key phrase is 'baby steps'. Johnston's position at the club had soured relationships with a lot of fans and local businesses, and those wounds won't neccessarily heal immediately. There has been an increase in sponsorship at the club, and we're revamping our hospitality packages by building an enclosure within the Main Stand, so the club clearly feel things will continue to improve as time moves along. Lee McCulloch took over in February and managed to guide the club to an 8th place finish. He’s was then appointed the manager full-time. Were you happy with him being handed the manager’s job on a permanent basis? I think the majority of fans were happy enough to give Lee the job. The issue I had, and it's one I expressed after the appointment of Gary Locke as well, was that he had no experienced coach or former manager alongside him. Locke brought in Lee McCulloch and Peter Leven as his coaching team, both of whom had just finished playing, and they were subsequently retained by Clark. When Lee became permanent manager, he kept Peter Leven on but I'd have liked a greater input on the board there. The Director of Football role is hot topic in Scottish Football right now, but I feel McCulloch would be helped with having a sounding board alongside him - my personal choices would be Craig Brown or Jim Jefferies. This summer has seen another busy one for Killie with players coming and going. Who’s made an impact and impressed you the most? It's always a busy summer at Rugby Park! In terms of new aqcusitions, Gordon Greer is the obvious answer. A recent Scotland defender, he just oozes class every time he steps onto the field. On Saturday last against Aberdeen he marshalled Aberdeen's atacking threat with consumate ease, and is probably still too good to be playing at this level. I won't complain though! Elsewhere, Dom Thomas has started the season brightly and looks to be a decent piece of business. Kilmarnock have struggled in their opening round of fixtures, only picking up two points. How have the team been playing despite the lack of points? No need for any panic yet? It's been a mixed bag. Controrary to what Steven Thompson was saying on Sportscene last week, we haven't just been a long-ball team. We try to pass the ball out from the back, but had no player to link teh defence and midfield with Gary Dicker out injured. Adam Frizzell, a wide man, was being asked to fill that role and he wasn't comfortable. Saturday against Aberdeen however, Calum Waters came in and filled the role excellently meaning we were able to fully play on the deck without having no link and being forced into a long ball. How do you see your team doing this term? It's a season of rebuilding, so I'd happily take a tenth place finish and continue to develop our young players. We have a very young squad, with Findlay, Taylor, Hawkshaw, Frizzell, Wilson, Jones, Thomas etc all regulars and all still in their late teens or early twenties, so another season of Premiership football will help them, and ourselves, going into next season. What player will cause Dundee the most threat on Saturday? Without a doubt, Jordan Jones. He tore Aberdeen to ribbons on Saturday, and is in the form of his life. He's pacy, direct, clever on the ball and has a good end product. He won't be at Kilmarnock long if he keeps up this run of form. What player from this Dundee team would you take in your team? Mark O'Hara *sobs*. I'd never have let him go in the first place, and he could have been the perfect man to link the defence and midfield as mentioned earlier. It’s a huge game for both clubs. We will be looking to build on last week’s win while Killie will be hoping to get off the mark. How do you see this one going? You're right, it's a massive afternoon of football for both sides. I have to keep faith in my team and believe that we'll come away with three points, but a lot of that faith is sat firmly at the door of the aforementioned Jordan Jones. If he can get running at Hendry or Kerr, then we'll create chances galore. If Dundee close the space he has, then we have to rely on Rory McKenzie on the other flank, who has a very poor end product. Keep Jones quiet, and Dundee have a good chance of coming away with full points.
  4. Dundee had to settle for a point in this weeks fixture with Kilmarnock. Faissal El Bakhtaoui gave the dark blues an early lead when McDonald had saved a Leitch-Smith shot and the little striker finished from 6 yards on on the rebound. Kilmarnock equalised on the 64th minute when Greer scored from a corner when Boyd headed the ball back into the Dundee 6 yard box.
  5. TheDarkBlues

    Dundee suffered a disappointing defeat against Kilmarnock at Rugby Park this afternoon. The Dark Blues produced a below-par performance, and they could have no complaints about the result. Dundee boss Paul Hartley made just one enforced change from the team that beat Inverness at Dens last week with Julen Etxabeguren coming into the back three to replace Kevin Gomis who had returned to France to be by his wife’s side as she gave birth. The opening stages of the game made for grim viewing with both sides struggling for any fluency and chances notable by their absence. However, Killie took the lead out of the blue in the 22nd minute when the ball broke fortuitously to Rory McKenzie who shot into the net off the post past Dundee keeper Scott Bain from 14 yards. The Dark Blues rarely threatened as an attacking force with dangerman Craig Wighton starved of ammunition but they finally tested home keeper Jamie MacDonald in the 30th minute. Marcus Haber won a header and knocked the ball into the path of sub Mark Williams, who had come on for James Vincent five minutes earlier, with MacDonald pulling off a fantastic diving save low to his right from the midfielder’s shot. Hartley’s men continued to huff and puff to little effect and they went down the tunnel at half-time still one goal in arrears. Dundee had a big scare just four minutes after the restart when Killie’s Nathan Tyson hit a snap shot which clipped the top of Bain’s bar. The Dark Blues then had a great opportunity of their own when Kevin Holt flighted a cross in from the left to Haber loitering at the back post but the big Canadian sent his header wide when he should have at least worked MacDonald. Dundee then threatened again in the 65th minute when Williams cut the ball back to Wighton but his flick flew into the side netting of the Killie goal. However, it was Kilmarnock who doubled their advantage in the 70th minute when a cutback from the left found Souleymane Coulibaly who fired high past Bain to all but put the game to bed. Tyson then looked certain to deliver the final knockout blow in the 80th minute when he raced clean through on goal but Bain pulled off a superb save from the striker’s shot. Bain came to the rescue again when he dived low to his right to keep out another McKenzie shot. Dundee were denied a consolation goal right at the death when MacDonald made a stop with his feet to keep out a Williams header.
  6. Prior to the visit to Rugby Park, the revitalised Dark Blues had won three out of the last four games, with the only defeat coming at Ibrox when Rangers netted an injury-time winner. Paul Hartley’s side travelled to Ayrshire in confident frame of mind but were second best to Kilmarnock all day. Hateley admitted Dundee’s display was as bad as when they were in the middle of a previous six-game losing streak and the 27-year-old midfielder insists the players all need to take a long, hard look at themselves before next weekend’s crunch game at home to Ross County. He said: “A bad day at the office is probably the best way to describe the game. “No-one really turned up and it was a disappointing afternoon. It just wasn’t good enough all round. I don’t think we will play well every week. We have been on a good little run of performances and we didn’t see it coming today, to be honest. It was a big surprise and everybody in the changing-room is disappointed. We have another big game next week now and we just need to put this behind us. It was one of those off days that are going to happen during the season. Not everyone is going to play well every week and you just have to try to be as consistent as you can. Hopefully this is just one of those bad weeks that we have not had for a while. We have to put it behind us and kick on next week. Hateley added: “This is a big month and we have to keep being positive and confident. Like I said, we have been on a decent run, winning three out of four. Today wasn’t the same side we have been recently which is the most disappointing thing really. We were in a big slump earlier in the season and managed to come out the other side of it, but today was almost going back to it. We didn’t pick up enough first balls, we didn’t pick up enough second balls . . . you could go through the whole team and say nobody was good enough. I am sure the boys will go home and look at themselves, everybody is a man in there and doesn’t need telling that no-one did their job well enough. But we will go back into training next week and look to put things right. Killie took the lead in the 22nd minute when the ball broke fortuitously to Rory McKenzie who shot into the net off the post past Dundee keeper Scott Bain from 14 yards.
  7. “It’s a tough period for us so we will use the whole squad. The starting eleven are performing well just now so we need to keep it going, keep working hard and don’t change too much.” On what has changed over the past month to bring result, the manager said “Changed the style, the way we are playing. I think Haber has made a huge difference for us but the team as a whole have been working really hard. They’ve been hard to beat, playing on the front foot and playing with confidence now.” “We have to work hard here. We work hard every time we train and out on the pitch, the players have shown that in the last month or so, they’ve had their critics but we’ve seen a different side to them.” “I’m really pleased with how they have been playing but they have to keep it going, we’ve not done anything yet. The league is so tight and you want to keep getting as many points as we can. This is a really important month for us.” The match is Dundee’s first trip to Rugby Park this season but the teams played out a 1-1 draw earlier this year at Dens, Paul gave his view on what he expects from the match, “Another tough game, I watched them against Celtic, they performed well. They had some good chances against a quality team, they’ve not had a game for a couple of weeks so they will be itching to do well but any time we’ve been there the games have been fairly tight, i’d expect that on Saturday.” On the team news front, the manager confirmed Mark O’Hara will miss out and Nicky Low will return to the squad, but also that Kevin Gomis may also miss the match, he said “Mark will miss out, he’s still another week to 10 days away. Nicky Low will come into the squad, Gomis may miss out as his wife has gone into labour and he had to fly back to France during the week.” Subscribers can watch full pre match press conference with Paul Hartley and Darren O’Dea on www.dundeefc.co.uk/deetv
  8. Technically, Rugby Park is Kilmarnock’s fourth stadium since its incarnation in 1869. Previously, Killie had played at The Grange, Holm Quarry and Ward's Park before making their move to Rugby Park in 1877. Though the name of the stadium has stayed the same, the pitch was moved a few streets down and a new stadium was constructed. This opened in 1899. During the Second World War, the British Army took control of the stadium and used it as a fuel depot for the war effort. This resulted in large oil storages being stationed on the field and come the end of the war the ground was in dire need of repair. German and Italian P.O.W.s would help to repair the terraces of the ground due to n compensation being offered for the state Rugby Park was left in. After initially deciding that a move to another location was a better idea than bringing the current stadia up to after The Taylor Report was published in 1990, planning permission was rejected and it was then decided to upgrade Rugby Park to what we know today. Construction on all three stands took just 348 days. The last game before construction took place in 1994 and the first after redevelopment was also against Rangers in 1995.
