Match Report

Newspaper extract from The Sunday Post.

It took Morton a considerable time to tune up, but once they came on song, Dundee's prospects resembled those of the proverbial snowball.

And by the end the only surprise was that the margin was only two-nil. Dundee, neat but punchless, held their own for the first half-hour or so. But then Ritchie, Hutchison, and Docherty applied the vanishing cream to their hopes.

Thus, a free-kick zoomer by Andy, a nod across goal by Roddy, and Danny lashed in the opening goal at the far post.

The half-time cuppa was still on the players' taste buds when Morton tied it all up. Davy Hayes sent forward a great lob which left Hutchison running through the middle, and Roddy majestically thundered the ball past the advancing Geddes.

Morton had few failures, with Hayes, Holmes, McLaughlin, Duffy and Hutchison their special stars.
