History of the Dundee v Queen of the South fixture

Queen o.t.S. face a trip to Dundee at Dens Park on Saturday afternoon, and have come away with little in previous meetings, having been beaten a depressing 30 out of 44 times.

The most recent encounter between these two sides was less than a year ago, in March 2010, where the two sides shared the spoils courtesy of a 1 - 1 final scoreline in a Scottish Division One match.

FootyMad's prediction ...

Queen o.t.S. have an average recent record on the road, and this could be the reason why Dundee may poach a narrow victory, according to the Madmen. Home win

Last drawn game 4 outings ago.

In a controversial podacst on the Official Site Queen's Kenny Brannigan has revealed he has only 9 outfield players to pick from and has slammed the board for lack of support. With Lilley,O'Connor and Johnston out through injury along with McLaren who is suspended, Queens are indeed thin on the ground for the trip to Dundee. It has also been revealed that two of the four youths will not be available either. This is a tough enough fixture for a full Queens squad and I can't see anything past a handsome Dundee win but football is a funny game and the unexpected can sometimes happen. A lot will depend on how well Craig Reid and company can defend and if perhaps Weatherston and Holmes can hit the target.
