History of the Heart Of Midlothian v Dundee fixture

Hearts prepare to entertain Dundee at Tynecastle Stadium on Saturday evening, looking to continue an impressive record. The Jambo's are clearly on top, having won 66 and lost only 22 of the 112 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Tynecastle Stadium was less than a year ago, in May 2003, the Jambo's carving out a narrow 1-0 victory in a Scottish Premier match.
