EARLIER in the week St Johnstone fan Greg Browning commented Montrose couldn’t defend on the road – and they promptly conceded seven at Stirling.
I wonder what he’d say about his own side who conceded four at home to Aberdeen last week and nine in total in their last three games.
Dundee have netted nine in their last four Premiership outings but drew a blank at Dumbarton in the Scottish Cup last week although by all accounts a poor pitch played its part.
The home men are in better form than Saints who have won just one of their last eight but I’m not sure I’m tempted by a best price of 8-5 with McBookie. Saints are 15-8 with Skybet while the draw pays 9-4 at McBookie.
Although they conceded four to the Dons Tommy Wright’s men put a fight to only lose 4-3 and while they’ll miss pacey winger Michael O’Halloran who has moved to Rangers they have Graham Cummins back.
January Player of the Month Kane Hemmings will be Dundee’s main threat after 10 goals in eight games and is 2-1 at McBookie to score at any time.
