Match Report

The final derby of the season turned out to be one of the most one-sided for years and culminated in us equalling our biggest wins of the season. The Tangerines stamped their authority on this game from the very first whistle and forged ahead after eight minutes. Gary Bollan's long ball down the middle was headed on by Christian Dailly into the path of Paddy Connolly and he took advantage of hesitancy in the home defence to plant the ball just inside Mathers' left hand post. The second goal was a real gem. Christian Dailiy picked up a loose ball on the halfway line and found Michael O'Neill wide on the left. By the time the Irishman had delivered his cross Christian Dailly had advanced up field to crash a diving header from six yards out past the helpless and totally exposed Mathers. Dodds then had a penalty claim refused and was then sent off for an off the ball incident with Freddy van der Hoorn as the Dundee skipper vented his frustration.

The second half was virtually one-way traffic though it took a blunder by Mathers to give us our third goal as he fumbled Gary Bollan's 35 yarder over the line. Two minutes later there was further joy for United fans as Billy McKinlay released a through ball down the middle, allowing Christian Dailly to run through the heart of the Dundee defence and score with a shot into the far corner. Despite a fistful of chances before the end we failed to improve on that four goal margin but with Hearts losing yet again, it appeared that we could blow the dust off our passports as we went two points clear of Hearts in the race for fourth spot.
