Match Report

Newspaper extract from The Sunday Post.

Dundee chalked up their third successive Premier victory against a jaded-looking Hearts team, and underlined the fact new boss Archie Knox has given his men a real lift.

The Dens team mobility and aggression made them deserving winners, although Hearts will kick themselves for scorning several during the second half.

There must be real red-for-danger signs for the Tynecastle club with their Skol Cup and European commitments in the coming weeks.

Dundee established an authority early on. Connor should have done better than head over from eight yards. Then they claimed a penalty when Smith appeared to impede Harris after the 'keeper had slipped going to gather the ball.

Dundee capitalised on their fine first half-hour with a super goal. Stephen and Connor broke down the right and Brown kept his cool to direct a left-foot shot behind Smith.

Hearts staged revival towards the interval and Carson produced a marvellous save when Kenny Black curled a free kick goalwards from 25 yards.

Dundee, however, pulled themselves together after the break and celebrated with a fine second goal.

McGeachie broke down the right and his run carried him all of 40 yards. McKinlay was handy at the far post to meet his cross and calmly stroked the ball behind Smith.

Dundee sub Albert Kidd should have made it three but he shot wide from a couple of yards. Park, of Hearts, was booked for dissent.
