Newspaper extract from The Courier.
Dundee's Scottish Cup replay against Morton last night was a bit like your average Hollywood sequel nowhere near as good as the first.
In a match almost as subdued as Saturday's 2-2 draw was exciting, the Dark Blues slipped quietly out.
They fell to an extra-time strike, from 20-year-old debutant Barry Mason, his goal being one of the few highlights.
The only others were the saved penalties of Iain Anderson for Dundee and Morton's Derek Lilley. Those kicks-in the 79th and 90th minutes produced match-winning opportuni ties, but proved the first career misses for two of the country's rising stars.
Lilley had scored 17; Anderson was still in single figures, but his error proved the more costly. He admitted failing to follow the old adage-make up your mind and stick to it-while a fantastic Thomson save denied Lilley.
"I was going to put it in the other corner, but changed during the run up. I still can't believe I missed it," said a rueful Anderson afterwards.
His disappointment was obvious, but was based as much on the team's failure to live up to expectations raised by a fine Saturday performance as it was on his own misfortune.
"We can't really complain about losing because we just did not play nearly as well tonight as at Greenock. We should have won then, but the same can't be said for this one, though they did not play much better."
Not much, but well enough to be justified in claiming deserved victory.
Home boss John McCormack was left searching for crumbs of comfort. "I have praised the players when they've done well, but this time we have to hold up our hands up and admit that was nothing like as good as they can play."
With the long-term goal being a Premier Division place, victory in Saturday's home game with Morton will be even more vital.
