Dundee FC vs Kilmarnock Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Dundee remain bottom of the SPL table after losing 2-1 against Hibernian. Neil McCann’s team received a major setback as early as in the first minute when Martin Boyle put Hibernian ahead. Marcus Haber scored his first goal of the season to equalise the scores, but a second-half goal from Simon Murray led to another defeat for the day. Kilmarnock picked up a first win in four matches after beating Hearts 2-1. Steve Clarke’s team were clinical of the two as they managed to score in either half through Kris Boyd and Adam Frizzell. The latter scored late on as a reply to Esmael Goncalves’ 76th minute goal, but Esmael Goncalves did miss a number of opportunities.

Betting Tips and Predictions

These two teams have been involved in an astonishing number of draws in recent meetings, as four out of the last six has been a stalemate. Unsurprisingly, the most recent meeting at the Rugby Park also finished as a draw. Kilmarnock have managed three draws and two wins in the last five away matches. Even though Dundee have been on a five-game losing streak, I would go with Neil McCann’s team to utilise home advantage to try and pick up some points. I would back a draw. Despite a poor run of form between these two clubs, they have been able to score at almost a goal per game – at the Dens Park in the case of Dundee and away matches in the case of Kilmarnock. I see excellent value in backing both teams to score.

Draw – 11/5

Dundee FC Preview

Dundee have been going from one bad result to another, as pressure on manager Neil McCann mounts. Even after 13 matches into the season, Dundee have only managed a mere two victories. The club’s last victory was towards the end of September against Hearts. Since then, a run of five consecutive defeats have pushed the team to the bottom of the table. Dundee have conceded more goals (25) than any other team in the division. AJ Leitch-Smith is the top scorer at the club with four goals in nine appearances.

Dundee FC Team News

Neil McCann will be without Darren O'Dea (concussion) due to injury.

Kilmarnock Preview

Kilmarnock are starting to open up a sizable advantage over the bottom places, while the club are also trying to make a push for the top six positions. Even after a disappointing start to the season, Kilmarnock are only four points behind the sixth placed Hearts even after 13 matches. There is a realistic possibility that the club will end up in the top six, if they continue on the recent run of form. The heavy loss against Hibernian is the only defeat for manager Steve Clarke since he came to the club as the replacement for Lee McCulloch. The club has been able to benefit from Kris Boyd return to form, and the striker is the top scorer with three goals in 10.

Kilmarnock Team News

There are no injuries or suspensions for Kilmarnock coming into the match.
