First Team Debuts

Davie Dodds played his 250th major competitive game for the Club.

The long running saga of success against our neighbours came to an end as Dundee gained their first derby victory in 12 outings. The crucial goal came after 18 minutes when McKimmie won a challenge with Davie Dodds in midfield and the ball broke kindly for Peter Mackie who raced away, rounded Hamish McAlpine and glided the ball into the net past a despairing Dave Narey.

The nearest United came to scoring was an overhead effort from Derek Johnstone. Although United dominated for long spells in the second half, scoring chances were limited. It was a physical but never dirty encounter in which two players, John Holt (56th minute) and Tosh MicKinlay (79th minute) incurred the referees displeasure and were booked.
