All 24 players involved deserved every credit for braving hypothermia. Alas, here endeth the credits.
How these two teams scored 17 goals between them in their last three encounters boggles the mind.
This was a real ropey one with a goal seeming unlikely. As the game wore on, the impression gathered that if anyone was going to score, it would be Tommy Coyne. That proved to be wrong, but it was Coyne. who started the move by winning the ball on the left and crossing to John Brown, who merely tapped it back as Tosh McKinlay came in full tilt to blast it past Money.
The first half was particularly dreadful. Dundee, against the wind, took 33 minutes to test Money with a Brown header. Saints, with the wind, did not test Geddes at all.
The second half was a slight improvement with Jim Duffy heading one against the bar, and Saints' substitute Cameron hitting a rasper against Geddes' post, only for the ball to rebound into the 'keeper's arms. But even that late winner did not erase the impression that Clydebank and Raith Rovers could be in clover in the Scottish Cup quarter-finals next Saturday.
lan Ferguson was easily Saints' best player. He got a little help from Money, Godfrey and Abercromby, while McKinlay, Duffy, Brown, and Coyne were the best Dark Blues.
Man of the match-JIM DUFFY had another elegant stroll.
