Dundee host Ayr United in a potentially pivotal clash at the top of the Scottish Championship table on Tuesday. The visitors, who currently occupy third position, head to Dens Park one point behind their forthcoming opponents as both sides look to chase down Queen’s Park at the summit.
Dundee could remain without Cillian Sheridan for the rest of the campaign, with the 34-year-old suffering with an Achilles tendon rupture.
Providing he has no concerns regarding fatigue, Bowyer may choose to go with the same starting XI that secured a point away to Partick on Saturday.
Likewise, Bullen is unlikely to see any reason to make changes to his team after they bagged an impressive 2-0 victory away to Hamilton Academical at the weekend.
Ben Dempsey and Sam Ashford scored the winning goals for the visitors, who will hope to carry out a similarly dominant performance on Tuesday.
Dundee possible starting lineup:
Legzdins; Mulligan, Ashcroft, Sweeney, Marshall; Cameron, McGhee, Williamson; McMullan, Robinson, Hannant
Ayr United possible starting lineup:
Albinson; McAllister, Musonda, McGinty, Reading; Ashford, Dempsey, Murdoch, McAlear, O’Connor; Akinyemi
Prediction: Dundee 1-0 Ayr United
With Queen’s Park putting a considerable gap between themselves and these two chasing sides, Tuesday’s clash is likely to be a cagey affair given the amount at stake.
Promotion arguably means more to Ayr given their 45-year exile from the top flight, but Dundee could have a little too much quality for their opponents.
