Due to a mostly full-strength squad, there is only the sole fitness issue for the Dundee gaffer James McPake to be concerned about. Alex Jakubiak (Hamstring Injury) won’t be playing here.
Our thinking is that Greenock Morton certainly have the ability to get a goal against this Dundee team, but one goal probably shouldn’t prevent defeat.
