It is fair to say that Dundee have been slightly inconsistent in the Championship so far this season. That was shown most recently when Josh McPake’s side drew 3-3 with Dunfermline after being three-nil ahead at some stage.

However, the last two games have seen Dundee record emphatic wins over Queen of the South and Alloa. In fact, the Dens Park side are unbeaten in their last five league games. That has seen the club move up to third in the Championship table, comfortably in the promotion play-off places.

Key to recent wins

One player who has been key to Dundee’s unbeaten run is Osman Sow. In fact, it is fair to say that the former Dundee United striker has quickly become key to Dundee’s promotion hopes.

In Dundee’s last three games he has scored six goals. That includes a hat-trick against Queen of the South, and a double against Alloa. The sudden goal spree has moved Dundee out of mid-table, and seems to have given the team some much-needed consistency.

 

Faces a big test

A big test for Sow awaits in Dundee’s next game, when they take on Championship leaders Hearts on Saturday night. However, the 30-year-old should be looking forward to that game. He is in such a good run of form that he should be confident about adding to his goal tally for the season.

McPake will certainly be counting on Sow to find the back of the net in the game. Who knows, a win for Dundee would perhaps give the team hope that Hearts can be caught and the Championship can be won.
