Dee without seven
Dundee manager Gordon Chisholm is asking his players to put the financial troubles at the club to one side and put on a show for the larger than normal crowd that will attend for the visit of Morton.
The Dark Blues have up to seven players missing with Eric Paton, Rhys Weston, Dominic Shimmin, Charlie Grant and Mickael Antoine-Curier ruled out through injury, with Milan Musin and David Witteveen doubtful
Chisholm said, "It was a difficult week and of course it is not very pleasant to tell the boys that their wages will not be getting paid until next week. I have asked the players to get the win that will lift everyone's spirits and I am sure they will go out and show they have a great appetite for the game."
Morton's midfield options have been reduced after Falkirk and Hibs midfielder Patrick Cregg, who played as a trialist for the Greenock men last week, turned down the chance to sign permanently.
The Cappielow engine room is further reduced with the absence of the injured trio of Carlo Monti, ex-Dunfermline player Graeme Holmes and Frenchman Fouad Bachirou, however defender David MacGregor is available after injury.
Manager Allan Moore is telling his players not to be affected by the issues at Dens Park saying, "I am aware that their may be a bigger than normal crowd but my guys have just to get on with their job and go about things correctly. A win puts us level with Dundee and that has to be our aim."
McMenamin snatches points
Colin McMenamin grabbed the winner for Dundee as they defeated struggling Morton 2-1 at Dens Park.
The home side took the lead after 25 minutes when Morton's Stuart McCaffrey handled the ball inside the box and Matt Lockwood stepped up to convert the penalty.
Morton equalised in the 41st minute through Peter Weatherson, who converted a Sean Fitzharris corner from inside the area.
Dundee could have gone ahead on the stroke of half-time but Jamie Adams sent his header over the crossbar.
McMenamin was on hand for them in the 57th minute, though, as he coolly finished with a right-footed shot into the top corner, leaving Morton stranded at the bottom of the table.
