Motherwell travel to take on Dundee in the William Hill Scottish Cup fourth round on Saturday.
Here’s a look at our opponents.
The story so far
Sitting inside the play-off spots in the Ladbrokes Championship, Dundee are continuing their promotion push after relegation last campaign.
City rivals Dundee United look practically out of sight in the automatic promotion spot, sitting 17 points clear of second-placed Inverness CT and 23 clear of their neighbours. But James McPake’s side are in the fight to join them via the play-offs.
With 20 league games played, they’ve amassed 29 points from eight wins, five draws and seven defeats, scoring 26 and conceding 28 on the way.
Dundee have won two, drawn two and lost one of their last five matches.
With their weekend match with Ayr United postponed due to the weather, defeat came in their previous match at home to Inverness CT.
Before then, an away draw with Dundee United followed wins over Dunfermline Athletic and Partick Thistle, and an away draw at Arbroath.
Three to watch
Since breaking into the Hearts team at the age of 16, Jordan McGhee has enjoyed a career that has seen him rack up over 150 appearances at senior level.
The 23-year-old made a big impact early in his Hearts career and scored his first goal for the club in only his second substitute appearance – earning the Jambos a 2-1 win over Aberdeen.
McGhee was able to establish himself in the first-team at Tynecastle before making the switch to Middlesbrough in July 2015. The powerful right-back returned to Scotland when joined Falkirk, before signing for Dundee in June 2019. He has made 25 appearances in all competitions so far for the Dark Blues.
After falling out of favour at his boyhood heroes Rangers, Graham Dorrans made what many felt was a surprise move in joining Dundee in the Scottish Championship.
The midfielder has demonstrated his qualities in his 15 outings so far for the Dees, most notably in the most recent Dundee derby in which he scored the equalising goal – leading to James McPake describing him as ‘far too good’ to be playing in the Championship.
Dorrans, who has been capped 12 times for Scotland, made his most notable contribution for Rangers when he scored a double in the 2-1 win over Motherwell on the opening day of the 2017/18 season.
One player who will be determined to make a big impact at Dens Park on Saturday evening is former ‘Well striker Danny Johnson.
Arriving at Fir Park from Gateshead in the summer of 2018 with an impressive scoring record, it was hoped that the Englishman would be able to bring that from north of the border. He started impressively, with goals against Livingston, Rangers and Dundee, though would find a run of regular appearances difficult to come by.
After finding game time limited in the second half of last season, Johnson made the move to Dens Park and so far this season has scored seven times in 20 appearances.
