Match Report

Newspaper extract from The Courier. Written report from The Sunday Post.

In registering eight goals without reply against Queen of the South at Dens Park, Dundee accompolished their biggest victory in League matches for many years.

The only possible verdict was that the Queens side were completely swamped and out classed. The home forwards did almost entirely as they pleased throughout the game.

Instead of bending their energies towards blocking the Dundee attacks, the Dumfries men made the mistake of trying to play clever football in the face of superior ability.

Every Dundee forward, with the exception of Robertson, was a scorer. Goals were scored by Blyth, Murdoch, and Paterson in the first half, and in the second Mackay, Dundee's new centre-forward from Invergordon, netted a "hat-trick."

The total was completed by Lee and Morgan (from a penalty.)

Queens were unsettled when, in the first five minutes, Smith, the goalkeeper, let through a simple goal, failing to punch out a long dropping shot from Blyth. There after Dundee ran riot, and the Queens' keeper was the busiest man on the field.

Although he conceded eight goals, he had no chance with the majority of the scoring shots, and, in addition, he made many fine saves to keep his side from utter humiliation.

The visitors should have secured a counter when they were awarded a penalty in the second half, but Jenkins, who took the spot kick, drove the ball straight at the Dundee goalkeeper, who had little difficulty in saving.

Queen of the South were shown in a poor light. Their forwards had little penetrative ability, and the middle lineand defence were completely overawed by Dundee.

The home forwards gave easily their best display of the season so far, Mackay, Robertson, and Lee being especially brilliant raiders.
