First Team Debuts


Victory was imperative and came thanks to a resilient display. After going two goals up through Billy Dodds angular strike and a deflected Steve Thompson effort, Dundee roared back. McSkimming pulled one back form a rebound off Sieb Dijkstra and then Dundee piled on the pressure. However, for once we held firm and Kjell Olofsson wrapped up the points with a blistering volley.
