Match Report

Newspaper extract from The Sunday Post .

From as early as the fifth minute when Colin Harris missed a penalty (Wilson having bundled Stephen to the ground), goal-scoring always looked as if it were going to be at a premium.

And yet there was always something to keep the crowd on its toes. All-out effort from both sides allied to numerous goalmouth incidents.

Just as it looked as if the scoreline would remain blank, substitute Stuart Forsyth set off on a penetrating runk which took him to the edge of the Morton box.

From there his pass found Derek McWilliams who hipped round to drive a powerful right-footer into the corner of the net.

Morton, whose goal scoring record this season verges on the desperate, looked down and out.

But an excellent left wing move ended with Tommy Turner clipping a cross to John McNeil, who rammed it home with his head-the first time a Morton player has scored at Cappielow since the opening day of the season!

Early on it bad been Dundee who did most of the pressing Harris and Stephen both missed excellent, first-half opportunities. while, following excellent leading up work from McCall and McWilliams, a Rafferty try was knocked off the line by Holmes.

After the restart, Morton rallied with McNeil having two excellent attempts, first a volley which dipped just over the top and then a drive which Carson saved well at his right-hand post. Then, just before the goals came, Morton had another fucky escape when a McCall nick was knocked away by Boag at the last minute.

Dundee, whose rhythm was affected by the departure of John' Brown, injured in the 29th minute, will regret all those missed chances.

Best of the day were.McGeachie, Rafferty, McCormack, and McWilliams.

Morton, no doubt overjoyed by that welcome point, had stalwart service from Holmes, McDermott, McNeil, and Duffy.

Dundee's Stephen and Rafferty were booked.
