Match Report


A 2-0 winning scoreline and Forfar penned in their own penalty area for the last quarter of an hour clouded what was episode two of the great escape. Undoubtedly there was no complacency in the Tannadice camp after the scare we were given at Tannadice. Certainly the way in which we began the replay in fine style. The real drama of the first half came in the 27th minute. Dave Narey tripped Kenny Ward in the corner of the box. Kenny MacDonald's spot kick was brilliantly tipped on to the post by Alan Main, deputising for the injured Billy Thomson. From the rebound a goalmouth melee ensued which ended with Jim McInally conceding a second penalty, when he made a diving save with his hands. Incredibly, John Clark side-footed the second spot kick wide of the left hand post.

Early in the second half we did go ahead. John Clark had a shot blocked but managed to push the ball wide to Iain Ferguson who hammered the ball past Kennedy from a narrow angle. This goal calmed us and quarter of an hour later, Kevin Gallacher sent over a cross from the right, which wasn't cleared and John Holt coming in at the back post guided the ball past Kennedy into the far corner of the net. Then came our final onslaught which might well have produced a couple more goals, but then a semi-final place was secure.
