History of the Heart Of Midlothian v Dundee fixture

Hearts prepare to entertain Dundee at Tynecastle Stadium on Saturday afternoon, looking to continue an impressive record. The Jambo's are clearly on top, having won 67 and lost only 22 of the 114 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Tynecastle Stadium was less than a year ago, in March 2004, with Hearts running out comfortable 3-1 winners in a Scottish Premier match.
