Inverness have claimed a point against the two best teams in the country.
On the face of it that would suggest that things aren’t all that bad in The Highlands. A 2-2 draw with Celtic followed a 1-1 draw in Pittodrie.
No arguments. They are impressive results for The Caley Jags. It is three games without defeat and the third was an impressive win over St Johnstone. Perhaps my uncertainty over the capabilities of Richie Foran will prove unfounded.
Although I still have concerns over their performances. St Johnstone aside, they were fortunate to pick up anything against Aberdeen and Celtic. The stats in those two games make for uncomfortable reading for Caley Thistle fans.
But Dundee is a game they should be eyeing up for a win. They may have some success in midfield with Jamie O Hara suspended for the trip up north. Big Ross Draper is a bullish competitor and has three goals to his name already this season.
Dundee are also struggling defensively. They have conceded in every game bar a 0-0 draw to Motherwell. That is one of three draws they have already chalked up. Following on from last season they look set to be the country’s draw kings once more.
Hence the reason I am leaning towards a particular bet. The head to head stats show that these two have drawn five of their last eight matches. Furthermore, they have draw three of the last five with a 1-1 scoreline, a result Dundee have had in two of their last four games.
While I think there is a modicum of value in the price for a Dundee win it is impossible to ignore the history in this one.
