Queen Of The South
Queen Of The South go into this game following on from a 0-0 Championship drawn game vs Ayr United.
It’s not been often in recent games where Queen Of The South have kept a clean sheet. It will be a concern for them that The Doonhamers have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 5 of their previous 6 games, leaking 10 goals during that time.
Going into this encounter, Queen Of The South have not won at home in their last 3 matches in the league.
Dundee come into this clash following on from a 2-1 Championship win vs Raith Rovers in their most recent match.
For Dundee, goals were scored by Jason Cummings (13') and Liam Fontaine (34'). Kyle Benedictus (88') scored for Raith Rovers.
A succession of hard-working showings by the Dundee defensive players has resulted in the number of goals they’ve conceded amounting to 4 from their past 6 fixtures overall. Over that same period of time, their own forwards have managed to score 7. With no two games being the same, we will just have to wait and see whether that trend might be replicated here in this match or not.
Analysis of their past results shows that Dundee:
- are undefeated by Queen Of The South in games played away from home for the previous 4 league games. A very decent away record against them.
- have not been beaten in their last 4 league matches away from home.
- are without a win away from home in their last 2 league matches.
