Match Report

Our stranglehold in Derby matches, particularly at Dens Park, continued with another fine performance. Making the victory even more commendable was the fact it was achieved without Iain Ferguson and Paul Sturrock. Mind you their replacements Ralph Milne and Tommy Coyne more than played their part. The first half was fairly even with a Billy Thomson save from Ross Jack perhaps the highlight of the opening period.

The second half wasn't long underway when we struck. Ian Redford floated a ball down the left wing for Ralph Milne to chase. After beating one defender he was brought tumbling down in the box by Hendry and after dusting himself down, got up to convert the spot-kick in fine style. Now on top our domination continued throughout almost the entire second half and was rewarded late in the game when Tommy Coyne squared the ball to Eamonn Bannon who steadied before volleying a low drive which Geddes deflected, but couldn't stop entering the net for our second.
