McBride sits it out
Dundee have midfielder Kevin McBride suspended for the visit of Partick Thistle.
Manager Barry Smith is also without the attacking threat of Jamie McCluskey, Stevie Milne and Graham Bayne through injury.
Defender Neil McGregor could return after a calf knock, with youngsters Kyle Benedictus and Leighton MacIntosh set to keep their places in Smith's starting XI.
Smith said: "We want to finish the season with a bit of momentum behind us and in second place. The best way to do that is to win our remaining three games.
"Partick beat us at Dens Park earlier in the season after our goalkeeper was sent off incorrectly. The red card was rescinded which didn't help us at the time so we will need to put that right by beating Thistle this time out."M
Partick are without the injured quartet of Aaron Sinclair, Darren Cole, David Rowson and Kris Doolan.
Jags boss Jackie McNamara could have Scott Robertson and Tommy Stewart available after knocks.
McNamara has urged his side to finish the season with a flurry. He said: "We have three games left and I want us to win them all starting at Dens Park.
"I want us to go there and be positive but I want the players to start showing a much more clinical side to our game as we are still not converting the chances we should.
"The three games between ourselves and Dundee have been tight this season but this would be a great game for the players to show that they have the correct winning mentality."
