Baz prays for mercy at Dundee.

DUNDEE boss Barry Smith insists the players and fans will suffer most if the club are hammered this week for going into administration.

The SFL could hit the Dark Blues with a hefty points deduction when they meet to discuss punishing the First Division outfit. It's the second time Dundee have flirted with disaster in less than a decade but Smith hopes league chiefs are lenient with them.

He said: "The players are the ones who will be punished.

"They want to play at the highest level they can - so why should they be punished for something that was totally outwith their hands? "Jim Leishman is on the board and he's a former player. I hope he will push the case that the players and fans will suffer most.

"We are in administration for a reason and there has to be a deterrent. But I'd like to think the SFL will weigh up everything and not punish the players and fans."
