Match Report

Dundee flew into attack as quickly as their flu bug had flown out! It took barely two minutes for success to come their way.

A nicely-placed free kick from the right by Cammy Fraser was met by a neat stooping header from Fleming and that was that.

Within another three minutes Fraser had forced Carson into a great double save and Sinclair had sent a rasper over the bar. Then the Dark Blues lost the place a but, but Dumbarton were too inept to take any advantage.

However, in half an hour a great shot by Williamson came out off the post, but in the 33rd minute his ex-Dons mate, Shirra, did better with a drive on the turn from 10 yards. It took wood and went in.

In the second half, Dundee again started well and when substitute Schaedler came on to allow Williamson to move up in the midfield, they began to look much more fluent,

Mackle, in particular, swung over some fine crosses from the right. From one of these Sinclair dived to head home his side's third goal.

Dumbarton introduced both their subs taking off Donnelly, one of their better players in the process, but they still simply couldn't get out of the bit.

When they did it was a surprise-a simple own-goal by Erie Schaedler, who carelessly turned the ball past the advancing Geddes.
