Dundee will travel to McDiarmid this Saturday to take on St. Johnstone for the second time in as many weeks, kick off 3pm.
Just 10 days ago the sides met in the Premier Sports Cup Quarter Final. Despite a dominate display by Dundee it was the Perth side who struck late on with the opener coming from Shaun Rooney after 70 minutes then a second to seal the win in the 84th minutes from Ali Crawford.
Four days previous, Saints got their first league win of the season with a victory at Pittodrie.
After their win at the Kilmac Stadium they took on Hibernian at Easter Road and were beaten by a Martin Boyle penalty and saw Jamie McCart sent off. The central defender will miss this weekend’s match through suspension.
Charlie Adam and Danny Mullen will miss out through injury. Leigh Griffiths will be assessed ahead of the fixture with an ankle issue that forced him off against Rangers.
