Dundee Hibs had hard lines in their first Northern League match. The forward line played a fine passing game, but their shooting at close quarters could have been improved upon. The half-backs were inclined to be a little shaky. The tactics of the home lads from the start were of a hustling description, but their efforts to pierce the Wanderers' defence were repeatedly frustrated. The visitors' attack was weak, and had it not been for their excellent defence they would have been soundly beaten.
Kennedy and Wyllie played a fine game, and it was mainly by their combined efforts that the Hibs' forwards were kept at a safe distance. Innes' position at outside left could not have been improved, but his attempts at passing were thrown away. The trial of Snee at centre proved a successful venture for the Hibs. He gave his wings enough to do, and his passing and timing were exceptionally good.
Hibs' anxiety to score was in a large measure responsible for their defeat. In closing up on the visitors' goal they were caught napping. Brady and Hannan's attempts to catch up on the fleet-footed Brown were unsuccessful. Hannan's penalty shot was weak and a chance for a draw was thrown away.
