Match Report

Newspaper extract from The Sunday Post.

This was the great Cappielow illusion. Morton now know, if they didn't before, that scoring a goal in only 12 minutes does not automatically guarantee taking the points. Not where these battling Dens Parkers are concerned anyhow.

Mind you, Morton's opener was a honey. Taking a delightful Ritchie chip, Danny Docherty ran clear, kept the head like a veteran and beat Kelly with an unstoppable grounder.

Till half-time Dundee had the edge though it took them ten minutes into the second half to equalise.

But if any goal can be described as "bad," this one was for Morton.

When Mackie crossed, Kidd and Stephen both foozled their finishing efforts and Dave Bell scraped the ball home low at Baines' left-hand post. That is, four Dundee touches and nary a Morton one.

Morton had by then collapsed so completely it came as no surprise when Dundee got the winner.

Fraser and McKimmie (just newly on) worked a wee miracle on the right, and, when the sub's cross arrived in the goalmouth, Mackie easily touched home.

The bookings in a hard, but not nasty game, were Houston, for a blatant foul on Fraser, plus Bell and Hutchison for a spot of midfield jostling.

For plucky Dundee none excelled Glennie, MacDonald, Fraser, Mackie,Band Bell. Over the piece, Morton's only pass markers were Holmes Rennie.

Hurry back, Joe Me.auhlin and Jim Duffy!
