Team News: Dundee
The Dundee manager Tony Docherty has zero fitness worries at all before this match thanks to a fully injury-free squad to choose from.
It’s our opinion that The Dark Blues should use a 3-5-2 system in the match featuring Trevor Carson, J. Antonio Portales, Joe Shaughnessy, Ricki Lamie, Jordan McGhee, Lyall Cameron, Malachi Boateng, Luke McCowan, Owen Beck, Amadou Bakayoko and Zak Rudden.
Team News: Hibernian
Hibernian boss Nick Montgomery has to choose from a squad that has some fitness concerns. Jake Doyle-Hayes (unknown injury), Harry McKirdy (heart problems) and Chris Cadden (Achilles tendon rupture) miss out here.
We believe The Hibees appear most likely to play in a 4-4-2 lineup, starting David Marshall, Lewis Miller, Will Fish, Rocky Bushiri, Jordan Obita, Martin Boyle, Dylan Levitt, Joe Newell, Jair Tavares, Josh Campbell and Dylan Vente.
We’re inclined to think that Hibernian and Dundee won’t have much between them here, and goals could be hard to come by.
A draw is a real possibility, as a clear-cut winner doesn’t appear to be obvious. That’s why our selection here is for a very even match with a 0-0 draw when the referee blows the final whistle.
