Match Report


Newspaper extract from The Sunday Post.

The objectives for both clubs were settled long before this game, so there was nothing really at stake, except professional pride.

This led many people to think a free-flowing game might unfold.

Instead, these teams served up a dreadful encounter with very few talking points and even fewer goal chances.

St Mirren, to their credit, had the better of any chances and had the better of the play.

The goal that mattered came after 17 minutes when Alan Prentice sent a pinpoint cross into the area, giving Tom Brown, the one player who was impressive, an easy score from close range.

Dundee's best chance came in the second half when, on the hour mark, former St Mirren player Russell Kelly saw his 30-yard drive go just past Alan Combe's goal.

The Saints fans sent a message to new chairman Stewart Gilmour by chanting the name of Tony Fitzpatrick at full time, showing who they would like to remain in the manager's chair.

Dundee are probably now just glad to see the season, that proved so successful, come to an end.

They can now prepare fully for their more difficult challenge in next season's Premier Division.
