MARK McGHEE came close to pinching a Parkhead point on his debut as Dundee boss and now takes his Dens Park bow as St Mirren come calling tonight.
It took a late goal for the Hoops to beat McGhee’s side 3-2 on Sunday and that will give the Dark Blues some belief going into another tough test.
St Mirren are one of the country’s form teams, with a stalemate at Livingston making it eight games unbeaten.
Losing gaffer Jim Goodwin to Aberdeen might derail them so I’m going for goals instead of backing a result here.
Danny Mullen has two goals in his last three for Dundee and is 11/5 at Bet365 for anytime scorer.
There’s a cracker in the Champions League as Manchester United head to Atletico Madrid with neither side looking convincing at the back.
Diego Simeone’s sides never hold back so cards looks the option here with over 4.5 priced 22/25 at Unibet. That’s not great value but Scott McTominay is 5/2 at Paddy Power to pick up his 11th card this season.
Ajax impressed in the group stage but not enough to make them odds-on favourites for a win at Benfica.
The Portuguese side are 21/20 in the double chance market (McBookie) and that looks a good option with home advantage.
