Match Report

Dundee finished their pre season trip to England with a 2-0 victory over Kendal Town thanks to a brace from substitute Leighton McIntosh.

Dundee continued to press down the left and Baird was getting closer and closer to getting in behind and when Lockwood lofted a ball forward, the summer signing did well to get it under control on the wing and cut it back into the path of the trialist who saw his side footed effort saved by Welsby before McBride turned over from the bouncing rebound.

Baird got down the left another couple of times, once playing a ball too high across for young Jamie Reid coming in at the back post and once going for goal himself but shooting wide before Kendal were on the attack again.

The home side played a move similar to those that Dundee were having luck with. Down the left they went and when Danny Williams cut the ball back to Alex Randall they really should have tested Gibson but the shot was high and wide.

Captain O'Donnell then left the play as a precaution and was replaced by Graham Webster who took the place of Davidson in behind the striker and allowed the former Raith man to move back to his more natural position.

The last chance of the half fell to Reid after the trialist had raced to keep the ball in, it was cut back to the Dundee youngster who had his first shot saved before failing to connect properly with the rebound.

Dundee made some early changes after the break with McIntosh and Kyle Benedictus coming on for Reid and Irvine. Kyle taking the captains armband from Irvine as he replaced him.

Those changes saw a further shuffle in the formation which saw Leighton go into the role in behind Baird and Webster move to the right of midfield.

Down the left was where the first chance of the half would come from for Dundee with the trialist playing in a ball that was just behind Baird but the striker flicked the ball over his head and over the bar.

As the game wore on it became clear that Dundee could possible have some luck down the opposite wing and although they did have the ball in the net from Baird after Webster had got free down the right, the flag was already raised for offside.

Kendal had their biggest chance of the match next with Josh Kenworthy racing in behind the Dundee defence and just as Gibson looked to have blocked the danger the ball spun wide of him and to Tom Kilifin. Gibson dived backwards as trialist Watts also came across and a mixture of the two saw Dundee clear the danger. Moments later a goal did come but at the other end of the park.

Baird got out wide right and hung a lovely ball across for McIntosh to rise had head home his first in pre season.

Dundee seemed to go up a gear on the back of taking the lead and after Webster got free on the right again his ball was too high for Baird in the middle.

The second goal did come, only eight minutes after the first. Quick thinking from Kevin McBride got a free kick out to Webster who played a low ball to the front post for McIntosh to slid home.

Neil McGregor replaced Declan Gallagher in the final change of the night. The last chance of the night fell to John Baird who looked desperate to get his first Dundee goal after the trialist winger headed down McIntosh's cross but Kendal's keeper saved the low shot.

Another good work out for the players and another win for the confidence. The players and staff all indicated it had been a worthwhile trip away in the build up to the season.
