Dundee Utd v Dundee betting preview
Date: 15th January 2016
Live on BT Sport 2
The last Dundee Derby was a real cracker and the Dens Park side came out on top.
That was one of the many games this season where Dundee Utd threw away a leading position. They have lost more than twenty points from a winning position this season and their fans must be wondering what might have been.
Meanwhile their city rivals are knocking on the door of the top six and it would be just rewards for a decent season. Paul Hartley has his team playing some wonderful football, at times, but the wheels have come off in recent weeks.
The Dee have failed to score in four of their last six games and five from their last eight. That is a far cry from the free flowing, free scoring side that Kane Hemmings was leading towards the top four. Hemmings himself has failed to score in three and that must have something to do with their poor form.
Although you can probably count on them to end that run tonight against an Arabs side who have been amongst the goals for some time. Five of Dundee Utd’s last six games have seen three or more goals with the same occurring in ten of their last fifteen.
They will fancy their chances of a win here to give their survival hopes a much needed boost but to do so they will likely have to score at least twice. Dundee will also fancy their chances having won the last one and secured a 2-2 draw here back in August.
Whatever happens this Dundee Derby has more to offer the fans of the respective clubs than simple bragging rights. This game will go a long way to determining Utd’s Premiership status and Dundee’s assault on the top six.
