Dundee fans who frequent the South Enclosure, or the ‘Derry’ as it is affectionately known, have been forced to relocate to the main stand tonight due to a water issue at Dens Park.
The club took the move following problems with the stadium’s water supply prior to the kick-off in the match between the Dark Blues and Aberdeen.
Described as a “last minute issue” by Dundee, it resulted in supporters being moved to sections A, B and C of the main stand.
Dundee FC said the decision was taken for the “safety and well being of supporters.”
A statement said: “Due to a last minute issue with the water supply the club will be unable open the South Enclosure for this evening’s match.
“The club have looked into every possibility and sadly this is the only option available.
“Those with tickets for the South Enclosure will be seated in sections A, B and C of the main stand.
“We understand this is not an ideal situation but the safety and well being of supporters will always be paramount when the club is making decisions.”
A spokesperson for Scottish Water commented: “We are aware of a burst water main on Mains Road which is causing problems at Dens Park and an engineer will attend as soon as possible.
“We are working to restore normal supples as quickly as possible. We have had no reports of this affecting supply to homes in the area.”
