Match Report


Newspaper extract from The Courier.

Dundee manager John McCormack brought a full-strength squad to Scotland's marriage capital but they were lucky to come away with a share of the spoils.

The Border outfit's blend of youth and experience which included former Dundee, Rangers and Dundee United striker Ian Ferguson-were more than a match for the Dark Blues.

McCormack said before the game that the result was not important but he would have been disappointed with the way his side conceded a goal after only three minutes when former Sunderland centre-half Paul O'Hagan headed home from a corner.

The goal shocked Dundee into action and Darren Magee, who had signed a new two-year contract earlier in the day, started causing all sorts of problems.

They grabbed the equaliser in 18 minutes when John Elliot showed good close control to fire home from the edge of the box.

The second half was a scrappy affair with neither side able to stamp any authority on the game.

Substitute Barry Smith came close in the 67th minute for the visitors when his shot hit the side netting.

However, they were forced to settle for a share of the spoils.
