9th February 2022

Form Guide

In the previous five matches played by Robbie Neilson's men; the JTs have won twice, lost twice and been held to a draw. Whilst slightly more inconsistent, albeit having played both Glasgow clubs, Hearts remain ten points clear in third place. 

It's a different story for Dundee. After getting past Kilmarnock in last season's Premiership play-off final - the Dark Blues face the threat of an immediate return to the Championship. The Dee have won just four games all season in the top flight, and have recorded 14 bruising defeats. 

The two sides last faced each other in Tayside in December 2021; Hearts left the City of Discovery with all three points after Jamie Walker popped up late on to seal a 0-1 win for Hearts.
