      Dundee Football Club, is a professional football club, based in the city of Dundee, Scotland. Founded in 1893, they are nicknamed "The Dark Blues" or "The Dee". The club plays its home matches at Dens Park. Dundee are one of two Scottish Premiership clubs in the city, along with rivals Dundee United.

      The club's most successful era was in the 1960s when, under the management of Bob Shankly, Dundee won the Scottish Football League title in 1962 for the only time in their history before reaching the semi-finals of the 1962–63 European Cup. Dundee have also won the Scottish Cup once and the Scottish League Cup three times.

      O’Hara went in for a challenge with Danny Redmon and despite winning the ball, the Dundee player came off worse and minus some teeth. He continued to play on and seemed to have shaken off the effects of the accidental collision but by half-time, he was replaced by Lewis Spence.

      “Mark has not been great since the weekend and I am just away to phone him to see how he is doing.
      “He was due to visit the dentist today just to try to get some work done. It is a horrible injury and there are a lot of guys who would have come off with that.
      “The only reason we took him off was because he was feeling a bit light headed. But what a performance to get to half-time.
      “It was quite brutal inside his mouth as his teeth had been ripped out. They found them thankfully and managed to get both of them back in.
      “I am not sure what work he needs done but he is not going to involved in the next two games.”

      This gives McCann an even more bigger selection headache for tonight’s match up in Dingwall against Ross County.

      Genseric Kusunga, Sofien Moussa, Steven Caulker are all doubts for tonight with the latter playing through the pain barrier on Saturday. Craig Wighton came off near the end of the match but thankfully that was just cramp and nothing serious.

      Defender Kevin Holts 18th minute strike secured the three points for the Dee and despite the Accies trying to rally a comeback in the 2nd half, Dundee would stand strong and see out the match 1-0. This result means that Dundee can’t finish bottom and it’s highly unlikely we will finish 2nd bottom.

      The away side did have a glorious chance to draw level with minutes to go when debutant Daniel Jeffries fouled Marius Ogboe in the box to hand Hamilton a penalty. Dougie Imrie took the spot-kick but Elliot Parish in the Dundee goal was on hand to save his penalty, albeit a poor one.

      Dundee’s win puts them 6 points ahead of Partick Thistle in the play-off spot with just two games to play. With Dundee’s goal difference sitting at 9 goals better than Thistle, it would take a massive swing for the Dark Blues to fall into second bottom.

      Despite this, Neil McCann has urged his team that their mission to stay up is not finished until mathematically possible.

      "Clearly we are safe from automatic (relegation) but there is still work to be done," he said.

      "We have put ourselves in a really good position. I have told them in there, no over-celebration and to be fair they weren't.
      "They are rightly happy with the result because it takes us clear (of automatic relegation) but the job is not totally done yet and you cannot be too complacent or take anything for granted.
      "We will go up to the Highlands on Tuesday (to play Ross County) and try to get three points."

      Dundee beat Hamilton at Dens and get 3 points and are now 99% safe!
      Holt goal in the 18th minute.
      Parish saves a Imrie penalty kick in the last few minutes to keep us in the Scottish Premier league.
      Well done to the lads today, everyone of them fought tooth and nail.

      McAlister spent two season with Hamilton from 2010-2012 where he played over 50 times for them. He would then move to Dundee where he play 124 times in the Dark Blues, scoring 13 times. 

      During his time at Dens, McAlister would be part of the Championship winning side of 2013-14 who incidentally, beat Hamilton to the title. Jim was ever-present the next season in the Premiership before leaving in the summer for his current club, Blackpool.

      Read on to find out who has impressed McAlister from both sides and who he thinks will come out on top.

      Jim, as an ex player for both Dundee and Hamilton, have you seen much of either team this year and what have you made of their performances?

      I have seen both teams this season when they have been on the TV. Both teams on their day are a match for most in the league and it seems that consistency is the biggest problem for them both. I am a wee bit surprised where they both sit in the league. I thought they might be comfortably mid-table.

      In fairness to both teams, this isn’t unfamiliar territory for either but did you think you would see both Hamilton and Dundee still trying to find the points to achieve safety for next season?

      I surprised that both teams still require the points to get safe as they both have the players to be pushing to get into that top half of the league. 

      Out of the times you have seen both clubs this term. Who has impressed you from Hamilton?

      The times I have seen Accies, I would probably say the one that sticks out is the boy (David) Templeton. He has popped up with some important goals for them this season and I'm sure he will be very important to them in the remaining games.

      And who has impressed you from Dundee’s starting XI?

      In terms of Dundee the boy (Glen) Kamara looks a very first football player and seems to have a bit of everything to his game. I have to give my ex-team mate a mention as well, wee Gowser (Paul McGowan). You know what you get from Gowser and he's certainly a player you would like in the trenches with you.

      It’s a huge match this Saturday. A defeat could be catastrophic for either. Hamilton are undefeated in their last four matches at Dens. Who can you see coming out on top in this tie?

      I think it will be a right game as per usual on Sat. The teams are well matched. Hamilton seem to come into their own at this stage of the season and have a fantastic spirit and all fight for one another. Dundee maybe play a bit more football but that could go out the window with what's at stake.

      I will go for a narrow Dundee win. 

      A final thought, do you think either side will find themselves in the bottom two come the end of the season?

      I don't see either of the two teams getting sucked into the bottom two places. I believe both squads have more about them than Thistle and County
