Match Report


Dundee got their First Division campaign off to a winning start with victory over a spirited Morton side at Dens Park.

The visitors gave as good as they got in an even but goalless first half.

Sean Higgins scored the winner after 56 minutes when he drove home Paul McHale's cross via the upright after a clever Garry Harkins pass.

Morton pressed for an equaliser in the last half hour, but Dundee held on to secure maximum points.
