Match Preview

Irvine back in hunt for Dundee Dundee welcome back full-back Gary Irvine from suspension as they look to extend their unbeaten run to 17 games against Morton. Trialist Craig Robertson from Lochee Juniors will continue in the Dundee midfield with Neil McCann in line to play his third and final game as a trialist for the club. Player-boss Barry Smith, who will not include himself in the squad, said: "Despite our run nothing has been achieved as yet in terms of staying up in this division. "So we'll just keep things going until it's mathematically impossible to go down. "Craig Robertson is in the squad again on merit and he handled the game against Raith Rovers in midweek well, so I have no issues with playing him again." Morton will be without suspended midfielder Michael Tidser. Former Dundee player Darren Young is struggling to make it after injuring a calf in the midweek win over Partick Thistle, while Kevin Cuthbert will continue in goal for the Greenock men. Assistant manager Mark McNally said: "We're looking at it as being a visit to the team at the top of the league. "That is the form Dundee are in and that is where they would be if they hadn't been penalised 25 points. "Both the games between us this season have been tight and we're due a wee break, so we're hoping we get it in this game."

Match Report

Dee held by Morton Dundee extended their unbeaten run to 17 league games despite being held to a 1-1 draw by Morton at Dens Park. The in-form home side started the game brightly and deservedly took the lead in the 26th minute when Sean Higgins fired into the bottom corner from the edge of the 18-yard box. Nicholas Riley and Craig Forsyth had further chances to add to the scoreline, and the misses proved to be costly when Allan Jenkins equalised for Morton in the 75th minute. After a goalmouth scramble, David O'Brien squared the ball for Jenkins to tap into an unguarded net from six yards.
