History of the Queen of the South v Dundee fixture

Queen o.t.S. play host to Dundee at Palmerston Park on Saturday afternoon, looking to continue an impressive record. The The Doonhamers are clearly on top, having won 16 and lost only 7 of the 29 games.

The last time the two teams met at Queen o.t.S. was way back in the black-and-white days of December 1978, with Queen o.t.S. running out comfortable 3-1 winners in a Scottish Division One match.

Recent respective form guides

Queen of the South's dreadful home form has resulted in just 1 victory and 1 draw from their last six played. While The Doonhamers have scored 7, a worringly large 11 have been leaked at the other end.

Dundee's away form is none too clever either, collecting 1 win and 3 draws from the last six played. While the Dees have hit 4 goals, 9 have hit the back of the wrong net.

Queen o.t.S. are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 8 points from 18 matches. Dundee see themselves just below half way in the Bells Scottish Division One, showing a record of 27 points from their 18 games played so far,
