Match Preview

Smith: I want a victory Dundee's interim manager Barry Smith wants his side to head into Christmas on the back of an eight-game unbeaten run by defeating Stirling Albion at Dens Park. Smith has no injury or suspension worries as the Dark Blues look to beat their opponents for the first time this season. Smith said: "Playing Stirling away was my first game in charge and we got a draw that day. "They are difficult opponents and a hard team to break down but we are playing with a lot more confidence now so I want a win. "It would be great to head into the Festive Period still undefeated and with another 3 points tucked away." Stirling will be without injured captain Ross Forsyth and are also still missing centre-back Scott Buist and midfielder Ryan Borris through injury and suspension. Albion have sunk to the bottom of the table and been knocked out of the Scottish Cup after losing their last four games in a row, but manager John O'Neill is remaining upbeat. O'Neill said: "This will be a test but it is a game we are looking forward too. Our legs will be fresh, we have done well against Dundee in the past and will look to do so again. "Dundee are on a good run but it is important that we start to pick up points and get away from the bottom of the table."

Match Report

Clinical Dundee win again In-form Dundee put the disappointment of losing their appeal against a 25-point penalty behind them by beating Stirling 2-0. Stephen O'Donnell and Leigh Griffiths were on target as Dundee stretched their unbeaten run to nine matches and make ir five consecutive victories. Although the visitors started brightly, the highly-rated Griffiths became a major influence and his fine work led to Scott Christie denying Nicky Riley. Christie also had to tip away a 35-yarder from Griffiths before O'Donnell opened the scoring after 35 minutes with a composed finish from a pass by Sean Higgins. Griffiths was a constant thorn in Albion's side, and Jonathan Brown had to head one of his efforts off the line, before the 20-year-old doubled the lead a minute into the second half by capitalising on a sloppy Jerome Heekeng backpass to round Christie and slot home. Christie kept the score down with fine saves from O'Donnell and Griffiths (twice) and Andy Gibson wasted Stirling's best chance.
