Match Report

Newspaper extract from The Courier.

Dundee looked set to complete a highly satisfactory week when they rocked English First Division side Norwich by grabbing the lead after only two minutes of a friendly encounter at Carrow Road last night.

After superb victories over Rangers and Celtic in the past-few days, Dundee kept up the good work when full-back Tom McKinlay gave them the early advantage with a stunning 20- yard volley.

A perfect cross from the impressive Iain Ferguson gave McKinlay the chance to crash the goal while England international keeper Chris Woods was beaten by the sheer pace as the ball spun from his grasp.

But Dundee's joy was shortlived as Norwich roared back with three goals in the next half-hour.

The home side were on terms in the sixth minute when John Rigby headed home from close range after Mick Channon's cross had prised open the Dundee rearguard.

Twelve minutes later Norwich's lightning-fast winger Louie Donowa scored after a 50-yard run, taking a return pass from Channon to slot the ball past Colin Kelly from 15 yards.

In the 32nd minute Donowa was on target again, cutting in from the right and unleashing an angled drive which rocketed into the far corner.

Dundee stepped up the pace after the interval, with Ferguson and Ray Stephen putting in some fine work in midfield. It was Stephen who set up a chance in the 72nd minute for Walker McCall to put Dundee back in the picture with a low 10-yard shot.

However, McCall fell awkwardly when scoring and had to limp off clutching his side. Four minutes from the end Dundee suffered another injury blow.

Stephen, who looked to have twisted a leg, had to be carried off.
