Match Report

Newspaper extract from The Courier.

Dundee's superior fitness and fire earned them a Skol third round place as they crashed in three goals, but it took the Dens Park side until the extra half hour to assert their goal superiority on the First Division side.

After Graham Harvey's two goals had kept them level, however, Dundee made no mistake.

Seven minutes of extra time was enough for Ray Stephen to put them ahead and then recent- signing from Aberdeen lan Angus grabbed another two in 101 and 107 minutes to give them their passport into this morning's third round draw.

The Dens Parkers got an early indication of their difficult night when the First Division club took the lead in only nine minutes.

A well worked goal it was with Holmes and Richardson combining well on the left before the left-back's cross was met by striker Rowan Alex ander leaping above the Dundee defence to head firmly into the net.

That stung Dundee and as they surged forward, they engineered the equaliser in 17 minutes when Brown headed on a Stuart Forsyth free kick for Graham Harvey to shoot low into the net from the edge of the six-yard line.

Before the Dark Blues could even congratulate themselves on that equaliser, however, they were behind again.

Morton raced straight to the other end of the park from the restart for Tommy Turner, playing in a spare right-back role despite the No. 6 on his back, to be in position to lob over Geddes.

With Richardson and Doak of Morton and Ray Stephen all getting the yellow card before half-time, there was no lack of excitement, but Dundee did not really come close to their much sought-for equaliser until ten minutes into the second half when Stephen must have been positive that he had put his side back on level terms.

Striking from the edge of the six-yard area yet again, carefully chose his place for his strong header and was aghast as Wylie somehow flicked the ball one-handed past the post.

The sigh of relief was almost audible from the Dundee dugout eleven minutes from the end when the Dens Parkers got back on level terms again.

Again it was Graham Harvey who was on the spot to back head the important equaliser from the edge of the six-yard area.
