Match Report

In conditions which starkly contrasted with the U.E.F.A. tie with Barcelona - bitterly cold and little atmosphere - we dropped our first ever League point to Clydebank at Tannadice. The visitor's received an early boost when Dave Narey was short with his pass back and Stuart Gordon nipped in to round Billy Thomson to score. Even before that, Iain Ferguson had gone close but it wasn't until four minutes before the interval that we equalised. Maurice Malpas was fouled on the left Paul Sturrock flighted in the free-kick which was headed in by Paul Hegarty, on his return from injury in typical fashion.

During the second half without displaying anything like the fluency of recent matches, we still had chances to win the match, most notably two minutes from the end. A Sturrock cross from the left was laid off by Iain Ferguson to Paul Hegarty, but his drive from 8 yards went past the far post. If the result was disappointing, there were two plus factors - the form of Paul Hegarty on his return from injury and the promise of Harry Curran making his debut in this match.
