Welcome to the Evening Telegraph live blog for today's Scottish Premiership clash between Celtic and Dundee. Kick-off at 3.
TEAM NEWS as Dundee aim to end Celtic's 58-game unbeaten run and extend their own to 4.
After scoring both goals in Dundee's 2-1 win over Hearts last time out Kerr Waddell would be right to feel a little aggrieved at being left out. It's a big call from Dee gaffer Neil McCann to give Josh Meekings his debut at Parkhead. Will it pay off?
Sofien Moussa has been off the boil of late and had a shocker against Hearts two weeks back. He is rightly dropped with A-Jay Leitch-Smith coming in. The nippy little striker has looked good when played. He will be trying to get in behind the Hoops' backline today.
FULL TEAM LINES
Celtic: de Vries; Gamboa, Boyata, Bitton, Tierney; Ntcham, Kouassi, McGregor, Roberts, Sinclair; Griffiths.
Subs: Hazard (GK), Dembele, Edouard, Ajer, Forrest, Henderson, Miller.
Dundee: Bain; Hendry, Meekings, O'Dea; Kamara, Spence, McGowan, O'Hara, Holt, Deacon; Leitch-Smith.
Subs: Parish (GK), Kerr, Moussa, El Bakhtaoui, Wolters, Curran, Waddell.
Given the personnel deployed it looks like Dundee are set to continue with their 3-5-2 shape. However, wing-backs Mark O'Hara and Kevin Holt may have to do a lot of defending as it switches to a 5-3-2.
Just over 10 minutes till kick-off here in the east end of Glasgow. Dundee will know as well as they play they need Celtic to have an off-day to get anything today. There should be no pressure on the men in dark blue, if they play without fear they might just sneak something.
0 mins: We're underway here at Celtic Park as Glen Kamara kicks-off for Dundee.
2 mins: Celtic have a free-kick on the edge of the box after Jack Hendry fouled Kieran Tierney.
5 mins: Callum McGregor curls a left-footed effort wide for Celtic.

20 mins: Kieran Tierney is the latest Celt to have a pop, firing a speculative drive wide of the goal.
21 mins: Dundee are continuing to put pressure on themselves by playing the ball out from the back. Neither Meekings or Darren O'Dea look comfortable in possession.
23 mins: Glen Kamara and Lewis Spence are doing their best to try and break up home attacks but Celtic fire the ball about at such a pace.
26 mins: Worryingly for Dundee, skipper Darren O'Dea is down holding his ankle after a late challenge from Eboue Kouassi near the touchline.

31 mins: Dundee have come into the game in the last few minutes. Paul McGowan has been key in dictating their play.

45 mins: HALF-TIME and Dundee can be pleased with their work in the first 45 minutes. Celtic did have chances but the Dark Blues have done well to limit them. At the other end of the park they have been tidy in possession without really threatening.
45 mins: Celtic kick-off the second-half here at Parkhead.
49 mins: Jack Hendry has dealt with everything Scott Sinclair has thrown at him today. A very impressive game from the young man, so far.
50 mins: Kevin Holt drags a shot wide of de Vries' post after a Deacon corner breaks to him on the edge of the box.

61 mins: GOAL Celtic Olivier Ntcham fires a right-footed drive beyond Bain from 25 yards out. 1-0.
64 mins: The goal had been coming and Paul McGowan will be frustrated his misplaced pass allowed Ntcham to pick up the ball and smash his shot past Bain. It swerved a little in the air and wriggled past the keeper, who has been excellent today once again.
65 mins: Roberts has been Dundee's tormentor-in-chief. They can't seem to pin him down for long enough to stop him. Frighteningly quick and skillful.
67 mins: CELTIC SUB Liam Henderson replaces Eboue Kouassi.
68 mins: de Vries produces a save straight out of the top drawer to keep McGowan's net-bound effort out. That was a great chance for the Dee.

90+1 mins: El Bakhtaoui stings de Vries' palms with a vicious volley from Moussa's knock down.
