Match Report

Newspaper extract from The Sporting Post.

After losing the opening goal and turning in an indifferent display, Dundee staged a spirited comeback with Tommy Coyne completing a hat-trick.

Bankies went into an early lead when big Mike Conroy ran unchallenged towards the Dundee penalty area, and although there seemed several chances to stop his progress, he pushed the ball through to Stuart Gordon, who netted from 12-yards

The leveller came after Alan Lawrence crossed a perfect ball and Coyne volleyed an unstoppable shot past Gallacher for the equaliser.

Lawrence provided the cross for the second. Wright headed over the keeper and Coyne followed-up to tap the ball into the vacant net.

Dundee's third, the best of the match, was started by Rafferty, and via Wright, Coyne completed his hat-trick.

Dundee's fourth right on the whistle was deservedly scored by Wright, who blocked a clearence and shot low into goal.

Lawrence and Smith of Dundee, together with Shanks of Clydebank, were shown the yellow card.
