Match Report

Newspaper extract from Aberdeen Press and Journal.

Dundee introduced £200,000 signing Dusan Vrto, a Czech midfielder.

Airdrie had a hall-chance in seven minutes when Jamie McGowan slipped in attempting to clear, leaving Kenny Black unmarked, but the midfield man's cross hit the side net. Dundee had another scare three minutes later when Coyle's effort rebounded from the bar.

The home side continued to press and Alan Lawrence forced Jim Leighton to make an excellent save on the line.

Dundee's Steve Campbell was booked after pulling down Coyle. A Black cross into the heart of the Dens defence in 37 minutes cause concern, but Gus Ceasar and Evan Balfour failed to take advantage.

Vrto shot narrowly past the post and then Leighton made a brilliant save from a Chris Honor header. Honor headed narrowly over from the corner and in a counter-attack, Billy Dodds fred inches wide.

(Hall-time: 0-0) Dundee forced the pace after the restart and went close from a Dodds effort which trundled past the post.

Airdrie almost went ahead on the hour mark when Evan Balfour outjumped the Dundee defence to a Paul Jack cross, only to see his header go narrowly over.

John Martin came to Airdrie's rescue five minutes later, holding a Dodds header from a Graham Rix cross.
