This is last chance saloon for the dons, defeat and Europe is all but impossible…
Jimmy Calderwood told the BBC:
Somebody told me that we haven’t won in our last four games at Tannadice and that amazed me. I don’t think we have played that badly there, although in certain phases we have been very bad.
‘The problem is we keep gifting presents to them. They are a good enough team and don’t need our help.
‘The goals that have been scored against us have mostly been down to our own stupidity. We have got to cut that out and give ourselves a platform to go on and win the game.’
