Match Report


Dundee won a tense opening-day encounter in which the visitors were unlucky not to take something.
The Dark Blues opened the scoring in the 10th minute with a close-range header from Bobby Mann.

The visitors equalised 15 minutes later with a close-range volley from Stewart Kean but Simon Lynch edged Dundee ahead with a neat flick after 77 minutes.

Dundee striker Tom McManus stroked in a third goal but a freak late effort from John Baird gave the Buddies hope.
