Dundee FC vs Motherwell Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Dundee were able to produce a 2-1 comeback win over Partick Thistle in the latest league outing. The home team were able to score through Conor Sammon just before half-time. Dundee seemed to be heading for a fourth consecutive loss when Simon Murray stepped up to score two goals in the space of six minutes – towards the end – to hand an unlikely victory for Neil McCann’s team. Motherwell lost 1-0 against in-form Kilmarnock at Fir Park. Motherwell were unable to make the most of their chances and Stephen O'Donnell came up with a long-range effort to seal the three points.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Dundee have already faced Motherwell three times in the 2017-18 season, but have only managed a draw from these games. Motherwell may have lost during the weekend, but the team has displayed reasonable form coming into this match. After losing four out of the last five home matches, Dundee are not expected to provide much of a resistance to Motherwell getting a third consecutive victory at the Dens Park. I would choose a win for Motherwell. Motherwell have been quite disciplined at the back and just one of the last five SPL matches for Robinson’s team have been with more than 2.5 goals. Meanwhile, Dundee have predominantly been witnessing games with over 2.5 goals. However, I expect Motherwell’s defence to have a strong outing and register less than 2.5 goals in total.

Dundee FC Preview

The away game against Partick Thistle provided a surprise boost for Dundee, who have now managed three wins in the last four away matches. The result lifts Dundee a comfortable seven points ahead of Ross County at the bottom. The win comes at a better time for the club, who were braced for a challenge from Ross County and Hamilton in the recent weeks. Dundee’s offence has not provided much to shout about, but the team has managed a relatively good nine goals in the last six games. Despite Murray’s brace, AJ Leitch-Smith still leads the scoring charts at the club with six in 19.

Dundee FC Team News

Dundee will be without Marcus Haber (knee), Craig Wighton (cruciate ligament), Kostadin Gadzhalov (calf), and Julen Etxabeguren (Achilles tendon) due to injury.

Motherwell Preview

Motherwell were left distraught at being unable to build on the two-game winning sequence, but the loss against a form team like Kilmarnock should not be such a big disappointment. Psychologically, Motherwell have to deal with the blow of dropping out of the top six. Motherwell are now out of the top six for the first time since August, and the team are now three points behind Kilmarnock. There is a possibility of dropping further behind Kilmarnock as Steve Clarke’s team have two games in hand. Motherwell have seen Ryan Bowman and Craig Tanner top the scoring charts in the absence of Louis Moult. Both players have five goals coming into the game.

Motherwell Team News

Steve Robinson will be without Ellis Plummer (hamstring), Ryan Bowman (knee), Peter Hartley (foot), and George Newell (knee) due to injuries.
