THERE are 13,000 reasons why Dundee United and Dundee should be in the Premiership.
The Dundee derby is back and the sold-out signs at Tannadice is a reminder of where the clubs used to stand in Scottish football
Live TV cameras will capture the action and let's hope it's action-packed.
Picking derby winners isn't always easy but one man could make the difference between the rivals tonight – and that's Lawrence Shankland.
The striker, who netted 34 for Ayr last season, has hit the ground running as fast as Usain Bolt with seven goals in three Championship encounters. Shankland is 10-3 at bet365 to score first and evens at BetVictor to net at anytime.
United have started with three wins and are the only side with a 100 per cent record. They're already four points clear of Dundee and are evens at BetVictor to extend it to seven.
Dundee are 3-1 at bet365 to cause a surprise with the draw 5-2 with the same firm. The first league derby for seven years could be a fiery affair and every chance of a red card being shown at 7-2 with bet365.
Championship fans are treated to two live games tonight with Inverness v Morton first up and this should be all about goals.
David Hopkin had a reputation at Livingston for building a strong defensive unit but at Cappielow it's been about goals at either end – 30 in the last five games.
Don't pick a winner here – just go for over 2.5 goals at 10-11 with Betred.
