Our prediction for this Scottish Premiership match:
Dens Park will host Saturday’s Premiership game between Dundee and St. Mirren, the two bottom-table sides. Dundee aim to put an end to their seven-game winless run, and they are likely to leave their hearts on the field. Both Adam and McGinn are pushing for a start, whilst all Sheridan, Marshall, and Ashcroft are likely to miss the game with injuries. The Saints, on the other hand, aim to build on back-to-back wins over Dundee United and Aberdeen.
St. Mirren have been impressive at the back of late, and seeing that Dundee managed to keep a clean sheet in the previous two games in all competitions, a low-scoring affair is on the cards at Dens Park. As for the visiting side, experienced defender Conor McCarthy is sidelined with a long-term injury. In the first half of the season Dundee defeated St. Mirren thanks to Max Anderson’s goal.
Highlighted Player (Marcus Fraser):
Marcus Fraser is a Scottish footballer who plays for Ross County as a defender. Fraser is a product of Celtic football school, but he made no more than one appearance for the Hoops in the Scottish Premier League.

Speaking of his international career, Fraser has five caps for the Scotland U21 team, but he has yet to earn a call-up for the senior team. His main position on the field is a right-back, but he is capable of producing good performances as a centre-back as well. Marcus Fraser was born in Bishopbriggs, Scotland, on June 23, 1994.
