Dundee v Motherwell pitch inspection: Second Dens Park check at 1pm as fans forced to wait

The Premiership match is in doubt after referee Dickinson made early-morning inspection

Dundee’s cinch Premiership meeting with Motherwell is subject to a second pitch inspection at 1pm on Saturday.

The state of the Dens Park pitch has been under intense scrutiny amid heavy rainfall in Scotland, and with the Dark Blues having had four home games postponed already due to a waterlogged pitch this term. “Following this morning’s (11am) scheduled pitch inspection the referee has deemed there will be a further inspection at 1pm this afternoon,” Dundee posted on their X account.
