Match Report

Newspaper extract from The Sunday Post.

Dundee, seeking both their first league goal and their first league win of the season, rarely looked like achieving either.

An efficient rather than brilliant Clydebank side had more than a little to spare as they cruised to an easy victory over a lacklustre Dundee outfit.

Indeed, on this form, the Dens Park side are going to have bother scoring goals, never mind winning matches. Apart from two excellent second-half saves, Jim Gallagher. in the Clydebank goal, came by his winning bonus with minimum effort.

Joe Sweeney was the man who set Clydebank on their way, latching on to a long, through ball from Colgan and outpacing the Dundee defence before coolly steering the ball low into the net.

Sweeney then turned goalmaker, breaking clear on the left before crossing for Houston to slide the ball home.

Thereafter it was Geddes heroics that kept Dundee's deficit. within respectable proportions. But the young 'keeper rather blotted his copybook when the home side snatched their third goal.

Geddes Sweeney's seemed to have low, angular shot covered but allowed the ball to squirm from his grasp and over the line.

Clydebank have therefore continued their fairly impressive early-season form and young Sweeney could prove to be a real find.
