Tip Reasoning

Dundee could find themselves bottom of the Premiership on Wednesday night if they are beaten at home by Kilmarnock, as there are just two points between themselves and the team in last place, St. Mirren. The visitors arrive without a win in their last two matches, but with the knowledge that three points on Wednesday could move Killie back into the top three.

Dundee were left frustrated on Saturday as they failed to take all three points from their trip to the The Hope CBD Stadium in Hamilton. A rather dull and uninteresting first half between two cagey, struggling, and low on confidence sides ended goalless, but the deadlock was eventually broken by Dundee after a goal in the sixty-sixth minute from Wright. That strike appeared to have been enough for the visitors to claim a much needed three points, but in stoppage time Hamilton struck back with a equaliser from MacKinnon to pinch a share of the spoils.

Kilmarnock saw Hearts reduce the six point gap between the clubs in half following the visitors win at Rugby Park on Friday. All of the games goals arrived in the first half, starting with Clare’s opening goal for Hearts in the thirty-eighth minute. Naismith added a second five minutes later as Hearts looked to take control of the match, but in stoppage time Jones converted a spot kick to half the deficit. Despite Killie dominating the overall possession with 60% and stopping their guests from creating a single meaningful attack during the second forty-five, Hearts held on to secure a big three points in the race to finish in the top half.

We’re expecting an end to end, action packed ninety minutes between Dundee and Kilmarnock on Wednesday, as both teams need the three points as a draw doesn’t do much for either of them. Five of the last seven encounters between the pair have seen both teams score, and Killie have won the last three meetings. Both teams have scored in three of Dundee’s and three of Kilmarnock’s last five matches in all competitions. The visitors are the form favourites though with four wins from their last six matches compared to Dundee’s three defeats and one solitary win, and with that in mind, we’re backing the visitors to pinch all three points.

At the age of 39 veteran striker Kenny Miller is proving he still has plenty to offer in front of goal in the Premiership, scoring seven league goals for Dundee so far. Brophy has scored nine times and Stewart has eight for Killie though, with the duo causing defences throughout the Premiership plenty of problems this season.

We’re confident that both teams will score on Wednesday, but have backed Kilmarnock to claim a narrow 2-1 win. The visitors have won their last three games against Dundee and head into the match as the form favourites. Dundee have struggled for the majority of the season and striker Kenny Miller is the only player in the squad to have scored more than one league goal this season, showing just how much they rely on the 39-year old.
