Match Report


Newspaper extract from The Sporting Post.

Dundee strengthened their pro motion challenge in a hectic tussle at Dens. Close rivals Hamilton were always in with a chance till a two-in-two minutes burst by the home side knocked the stuffing out of them.

Hamilton began to show some of the form that had netted them 13 goals in their previous three games.

But the closest they came to counting was when a Love shot had McKinnon scrambling the ball off the line. The Dundee man was then in action as an attacker with a shot that would have done credit to a Roscoe Tanner service.

Goalie McWilliams stopped it and had to knock it for a corner. Williamson put Dundee's nose in front in 50 minutes following a move that started with Scott dancing round two defenders.

Hamilton refused to buckle under and the match became peppier than a radish-eaters' convention.

More positive play by Dundee was rewarded by goals from Shirra (80) and Sinclair (81). The home fans couldn't have wished for a better climax.
