Dundee are managed by Neil McCann who performed a u-turn and agreed to become the club's permanent boss, having previously stepped away from his position as interim manager at the end of the season.
In the last few years Dundee have yo-yoed between the SPL and Scottish Championship. In 2012 they finally won promotion to the top-flight after seven years stuck in the second-tier, however they were immediately relegated the following campaign. The Dees bounced back once again last season after Paul Hartley led the club to the Championship title.
A mixed set of recent results has seen Dundee collect wins versus Hearts and St Johnstone while suffering adverse results at Partick Thistle, Celtic, Celtic, Rangers, Aberdeen and Hamilton Academical. Draws against Kilmarnock and Hibernian has seen them show mid-table form at best.
