No league table has been added for this season.
Tonight we attempt to break the deadlock again, the two games already played were very contrasting. The first game was really a poor game with too much tension and little or nothing for both sets of supporters to shout about. The replay at Tannadice was however a real cup-tie and the type of derby game the supporters have come to expect.
After enduring 45 minutes constant pressure from United and going in at half-time two goals down we came out fighting in the second-half and transformed a game which looked to have been lost to one which we almost won.
All exciting stuff and a great game for the supporters and also a great advertisement for the standard of the Premier League.
I hope tonight's game is as good and exciting but with a different result obviously.
The winners of this quarter final tie will obviously have an advantage in the chase for the final European place, having two avenues to pursue.
Europe has been an ambition of Dundee football club since we re-established ourselves in the Premier League a few seasons ago and is an ambition we will strive to achieve every season.
Dundee United on the other hand will want to continue their impressive European run.
With both clubs having so much to play for, it make for a thrilling run-in to the end of the season.
