Dundee managed to bounce back from their disastrous 5-0 home defeat against Ross County with a slender 1-0 victory away against St Mirren last weekend.
The only goal of the game came in the 11th minute from midfielder Max Anderson, who placed his effort from the edge of the area into the bottom right corner, a strike which secured the Dark Blues just their second league victory of the campaign.
James McPake‘s men remain in 11th place, four points clear of basement club Ross County and just two points behind Livingston in 10th.
Dundee head into Sunday’s clash with a terrible record against Celtic, after failing to win any of their last 33 league meetings against them, losing 27 times in the process. Their last triumph against the Hoops was back in May 2001, when they secured a 2-0 win under former boss Ivano Bonetti.
McPake will have been pleased with elements of his team’s performance in the narrow 1-0 loss to champions Rangers in September, and a similar resilience in defence will be required this weekend if they are to keep Celtic’s in-form attackers at bay.
Dundee were dealt a huge injury blow last weekend as McPake confirmed that striker Cillian Sheridan will miss the rest of the season after rupturing his Achilles against St Mirren.
The Dark Blues will also be without midfielder Shaun Byrne and forward Alex Jakubiak as they continue to recover from respective knee and shoulder injuries, while Celtic loanee Leigh Griffiths is ineligible to face his parent club.
McPake switched to a 4-5-1 formation for the victory against St Mirren and could stick with this system again this weekend, which would see Anderson, Charlie Adam and Paul McGowan operate in central midfield roles in behind lone striker Jason Cummings.
As for Celtic, Carl Starfelt and Tom Rogic remain out with hamstring problems, while Greg Taylor (shoulder), Christopher Julien (knee) and Karamoko Dembele (ankle) are also unavailable with injuries.
Postecoglou is expected to stick with a 4-3-3 formation, with Abada and Jota providing support from the flanks for Furuhashi up front, though James Forrest is another option to play on the wing.
