Dundee frontman A-Jay Leitch-Smith admits it has taken him some time to get his head around the split.
The Dark Blues have four matches left – against Aberdeen (a), Hearts (h), Celtic (a) and Rangers (a) – before the Premiership breaks into two sets of six teams.
The Dens men will be in the bottom half and Leitch-Smith revealed the concept has left him a wee bit baffled.
He said: “When I was down in England I knew they had a split up here but, to be honest, I didn’t really know how it worked.
“Once I knew about the interest from Dundee, I found out a bit about what happens.
“It is something I am not used to.
“Down south, there have usually been 24 teams playing in the league and you play each other twice, once home and once away. So it’s simple.
“This is a strange one for me.
“I hear we can even play some teams three times at home and once away – I’m not sure how they would take that idea down south.
“You just have to make the most of it and try to pick up as many points as you possible can.”
Meanwhile, Dundee striker Craig Wighton took another big step towards a first-team return when he played 90 minutes of the under-20s match against St Johnstone on Tuesday, scoring in the Dark Blues’ 3-0 victory.
