Dundee welcome high flying Falkirk to Dens on the back of three wins on the bounce. Two wins in the league and one in the cup have given the Dees a new found confidence and tommorow will be a tough test as the Bairns look to build on their good start to the season.

Dundee hope to have Jake Hyde back from concussion and also Nicky Riley should hopefully be fit for tommorows game after returning to training this week after a knock.


Dundee's game at Dens against Kilmarnock in the William Hill Scottish Cup 4th Round will be shown live on the BBC. Coverage will start at 12.15 with kick off at 12.30 on Saturday 7th January 2012.

DFCSS have indicated that another fans ballot could be on the cards to vote for potential outside investment into the club.

They said in a statement on

The Dundee FC Supporters' Society today announced a new postal ballot would take place, asking members for their consent to a plan to bring in fresh working capital, a move which could result in the Society's shareholding dropping below 50%.
Society Chairman Scott Glenday explained "We’re obviously keen to see everyone move forward together and to do what’s best for Dundee Football Club. In terms of attracting funding and potentially reducing the collective shareholding the fans currently hold, people need to understand that over the last few months sums of money we thought we’d receive as a Club have in places reduced and some of the costs have increased. That’s been far from ideal, but what we can say is that we will have a go on the park this season and live within our means off it and that is what we set our stall out to do.
"In terms of forward planning what we hope to achieve is to put an initiative in place that looks further ahead than the end of this season and as a result, the Club board put together a proposal that was unanimously supported at the weekend by all of the Society and the Club's directors. In both business and life in general, circumstances can change and it's normal for companies and people alike to review any situation regularly. What's different here is that we as directors need to ballot the Society's members, rather than just asking a few people in a boardroom.
"Full details of what is now a joint proposal and a snapshot of the current finances will be released on or before the Society AGM on the 10th December. We hope to offer fans, business people and supporters groups alike an opportunity to invest in the Club in the New Year, and our aim is to generate a significant six figure sum. We’ve already had talks with several individuals who may be willing to underwrite a scheme that will see the money pledged by ordinary fans matched on at the very least a pound for pound basis. We’re also having a look at our options regarding the vacant position of Club Chairman and hoping that someone with experience, contacts and funding can be identified and brought on board in the very near future.
"All in all it’s a very interesting time for everyone connected with the Club, we’re coming off three back to back wins and the support the team continues to receive from the stands has been nothing short of amazing. To maintain an average home gate of over four thousand in the seventh year in the SFL is a credit to everyone who has stuck by them. We had around a thousand at Stirling on Saturday and I think with the visit of high flying Falkirk this week to Dens it would not be unrealistic to expect a gate nearer the five thousand mark. The team are on the up, the Dee-fiant spirit that was the trademark of last season's tremendous run is returning and a win this weekend could see us go as high as third in the table. There’s a long way to go and our chances of mounting a challenge would be helped by as many fans as possible getting along to the games when they can and giving the players their support - that would be no less than they deserve for their efforts of late."

Stuart Murphy has been instrumental in the on-going recovery of Dundee FC.
Dundee saw the third resignation from the Dundee board in the space of a couple of months as chairman Stuart Murphy quit his post as chairman and director of Dundee FC with immediate effect. That follows Jim Thomson and Chief Executive Harry MacLean (Harry officially stepping down in December after working notice) who both tendered their resignations. We wish Stuart all the best for the future and would like to thank him for his tremendous efforts in helping this club survive.

Greenock Morton 1-2 Dundee.

Ryan Conroy came up with the winner again for Dundee as the Dees fought back from a goal down to claim all three points at Cappielow. Morton took the lead early in the first half courtesy of a goal from Andy Jackson but Gavin Rae equalised in the 42nd minute with a fine finish from the outside of his foot. Dundee completed the turnaround in the 56th minute when Jake Hyde cut a pass back for the incoming Ryan Conroy who volleyed the ball past a beaten Cervi. More to follow.....

Dundee welcome Raith Rovers to Dens tommorow as the Dees continue to search for their first home win of the season in the league. Last week the Dundee performance was decent but a highly disputed penalty and some great saves from the Thistle keeper resulted in Partick leaving Dens with the three points.

Set to miss out for the Dees is Graham Bayne while Jake Hyde could be back in contention for the team. New loanee Calum Elliot will be in the squad for tommorows game while his Hearts team mate Denis Prychynenko could be in the line up for Raith as he yesterday agreed a loan deal with the Kirkcaldy club until January.


Calum Elliot at Dens today.
Dundee have confirmed today the signing of 24 year old Hearts striker Calum Elliot on a one month loan deal.

Speaking to the official Dundee website, Calum said:

"I found out for definite that I was coming here yesterday, I signed the papers and it's a great opportunity to come here get games and, hopefully, help the team to do well."

"I asked Hearts if I could go out on loan as I've been out since January and after a long time getting back to fitness the lack of a reserve league meant I wasn't getting games, I'm keen to get going here and am really looking forward to being involved against Raith tomorrow."

Calum has recently been out with an injury. He has also had loan spells at Motherwell and Livingston.

Big Rab Douglas will be between the sticks for the Dees this Saturday after winning his appeal for his red card to be rescinded. He was adjudged by the referee to have felled the Partick player in the penalty box and was subsequently was sent off. The SFA upheld Dundee's appeal after seeing video evidence which showed Douglas made no contact with Chris Erskine at all.
