For once a Euro evening is low key.

The recently crowned Norwegian champions curiously adopt a defensive approach despite trailing by two goals!

Nevertheless, Viking skipper Bemsten manages to get himself sent off after tangling with Kirkwood, whilst Anderson is also booked.

Tannadice tonight hosts another European occasion with the visit of the current Norwegian champions. Viking Stavanger. Once again it is great to be involved in the European scene with the extra excitement it generates, and it is vital that we continue to make further progress in the UEFA cup. Viking are a very technically able side whose main strength lies in defence. It will be interesting to see what tactics they adopt tonight, in light of the two goal deficit they are chasing. My guess is that they will sit back and hope to catch us on the break, though I'd prefer that they attacked us to make the game even more entertaining for you, the fans. One tactic adopted by Viking will come as an eye-opener to Tannadice fans. When ever they get a corner kick, five of their side surround the opposition goalkeeper to distract him, it is a ploy we ourselves may utilise at a later date. I was particulariy pleased that we came out on top in last weekend's derby, especially as we were once again deprived of the services of Eamonn Bannon and Paul Sturrock. The winning margin should have been even more convincing and it should not have taken us so long to convert our outfield superiority into victory. This evening I will once again be looking for the same form from Ralph Milne whose performance last Saturday was outstanding, his final pass being the flaw. Ralph is assuming the positive mantle normally associated with Paul Sturrock and Eamonn Bannon. In their absence we are relying on Ralph more and more, as he is the most positive player we have available and it is vital he continues to get to the bye-line. You may be surprised there are so many young players in tonight's pool. It needs no explanation, for coupled with the injuries to Paul Sturrock and Eamonn Bannon, the other fringe players have failed to respond to the challenge,and its long past time one or two of them moved on. It has however been impossible to attract interest from other clubs with the form they have displayed recently.
