Tip Reasoning

  • Dundee have failed to win any of their last ten 10 matches against Hibernian, including their last six at home.
  • Hibernian caretaker boss David Gray has been picking teams with a strong defensive emphasis in recent weeks.
  • Six of the last ten Dundee home games and six of the last eight Hibs away games have seen both teams not score.
  • Hibs held out for a 0-0 draw on their last visit to Dens Park, despite being reduced to ten men in the 58th minute.

Dundee and Hibs in dismal form  

Dundee’s relegation back to the Championship will be confirmed if Mark McGhee’s men don’t win Tuesday’s final home game of the season against Hibernian. The Dens Park outfit’s fate appeared to have been sealed when they went nine games without a win between December and February, losing six straight games in that span.

Hibs have had an horrendous second half of the campaign too with the decision to appoint inexperienced boss Shaun Maloney written off quickly as a failed experiment. Caretaker boss David Gray has been picking teams with a strong defensive emphasis in recent weeks in a bid to shore things up and restore some pride, but it hasn’t been pretty to watch.

This clash doesn’t promise to be a classic in any shape or manner with both teams struggling for any form and down on confidence. Hibs at least arrive off the back of two draws and Gray’s side did show some grit to come back from a goal down against Aberdeen at the weekend.

No guarantee both teams score on Tuesday 

The Dee have lost back-to-back away games 1-0, but have been better at home – drawing three of their last five on Tayside. But backing a draw here is fraught with danger as the hosts would be relegated with that result and will surely push forward in numbers to go for the win if matters are level late on.

That could suit Hibs, who have not lost any of their last ten games against Dundee, here. But their strikers are out of form and the rest of their line-up are better known for their defensive characteristics. The best way forward would seem to be backing both teams not to score – as this has landed in 60% of Dundee’s home games since the start of December and in six of Hibs’ last eight road games.

A 1-0 Hibs win gets our vote in the belief that a set-piece or a brief moment of clarity from their struggling forwards can put the hosts out of their misery.
