Match Report


Newspaper extract from Aberdeen Press and Journal.

Scottieh League newcomers Caley Thistle were brought back to earth with a thump when they crashed out of the Coca-Cola Cup at the hands of First Division full-timers Dundee at Dens Park last night.

But the game proved that Sergei Baltacha former Highland League outfit have a lot to offer in what is their baptism among Scottish football's "big boys".

Indeed, had experienced winger Wilson Robertson not wasted a chance in a million just after George Shaw had supplied Dundee their first-half opener, then the outcome of the tie just might have been different.

Second best for pace and guile, the Inverness side nevertheless battled non-stop for supremacy in a clash they were never looked upon to advance from in the competition.

Dundee's opening surge took the visitors by surprise and Neil McCann, the current target of Celtic and others, wasted a golden opportunity to provide he opener inside the first 60 seconds

The hesitant Thistle defence allowed McCann in with a glaring chance from eight yards, the starlet falling from grace however, by blasting wildly over.

But Dundee, despite Mark McRitchie's brilliance in the visitors' goal, were not to be denied and deservedly edged in front in 28 minutes.

Gerry Britton supplied the ammunition with a cross from the right, Neil Dully nodded down and George SHAW continued his early season scoring run with a blistering five-yard finish.

Then came Robertson's nightmare moment when, after rounding keeper Pageau 35 yards from goal, the winger hesitated to allow Alan Dinnie to race back and clear the danger.

That was all the encouragement a relieved Dundee requiredto go on to greater things, and the second half introduction of Paul Tosh for the tiring lan Anderson provided the key.

TOSH celebrated in style when he finished at the far post from a Neil McCann cross then added his clincher eight minutes from the end when powering a 12-yard drive in off the far post.

Only one player was booked in the tie, home defender Alan Dinnie in the opening half.
