Dundee United form and stats

Three Premiership home games done for Dundee United, who are not happy collecting 1 point from these matches. The Dundee manager M. Mellon might feel some added pressure to get something from this game after two straight home defeats.

N. Clark was the last player to score a league goal for Dundee and it's becoming a more and more distant memory as Dundee United haven't scored in 191 minutes.

No payout for Dundee in their previous match, an away game at Kilmarnock that ended in defeat 0-4. In the preceding match a 2-1 victory visiting Ross County.

As you see from the result above, Dundee suffered greatly in their last game. Thankfully the team has a new chance to prove themselves in this one.

Dundee United have scored 1 goal here in 3 league matches, a depressing statistic. Dundee United's goalkeeper has had to pick the ball out of their own net 3 times. For more goal stats, check the Statistics tab above.
