Dundee have asked the SPFL board to “urgently intervene” after being refused a request for more away tickets at Queen’s Park next Friday.
The Championship’s top two are set for a title-decider on the final day of the league season, should both pick up results this coming weekend.
A bumper away following would be expected to travel to Ochilview, the temporary home of Queen’s Park this season, for such an occasion.
However, the Spiders informed Dundee yesterday that only a “very limited” amount of tickets would be available for travelling fans.
Courier Sport understands that number is around 400.
Ochilview Park’s official capacity is 3,746 while the biggest league attendance for a Queen’s Park home game was 1,665 against Partick Thistle on January 2.
Their most recent home league match saw just 679 attend the 1-0 win over Hamilton while Dundee had an away following at Inverness last weekend of around 1,500.
However, a request from the Dark Blues to take up the “significant unused capacity” has been denied by the Spiders.
And prompted Dundee to ask for help from the governing body.
A club statement read: “Following a late and very disappointing ticket allocation notified by Queens Park yesterday, the club has tried to negotiate an increased allocation in view of the substantial demand for tickets from Dundee supporters.

“Unfortunately, Queens Park have refused our request despite the significant unused capacity at Ochilview.
“Accordingly, Dundee FC has formally asked the SPFL Board to urgently intervene as provided for in the rules and the matter will be considered when the board meets this afternoon.
“The club will update supporters with the outcome as soon as possible.”
The match will be broadcast live on BBC Scotland next Friday night; kick off is 7.45pm.
