Links Park, Montrose
Wighton takes advantage of a Jags slip and powers forward with the ball. His effort is off target though
Moore fires home an absolute screamer from about 25 yards. Absolutely nothing the young Jags goalkeeper could do about that.
Waddell has a free header inside the six yard box but heads over.
WIlson is cleaned out on the edge of the box by Etxabeguren who is lucky not to see yellow.
Scott breaks the offside trap and cuts it back to Lambert who makes no mistake to rifle home with an open goal to aim at.
Curran gets to the byeline and cuts the ball back but Thistle again scramble clear.
Lambert is free inside the box again but noone can get on the end of his cross.
Curran gets to the touchline and drills along the six yard line. Neither Wighton or Scott can take advantage
The ball is played down the line quickly for Wighton. Stevenson advances then retreats to his line. Wighton turns in the box, shifts away from a defender before firing high into the net from an angle.
Waddell sends a low free kick around the wall into the back of the net despite Stevenson's best efforts
Neat play from Dundee gives Curran an opportunity inside the box but Kelly boots clear. The ball comes back, however, and Dundee win a free kick 25 yards from goal.
James Stokes spins away from an Etxabeguren challenge and cuts the ball back to Higgins. The chance seems lost but the Jags number ten spins on the ball to slam home from six yards out.
Ferrie advances off his line to sweep a through ball but only passes it to James Stokes. His cross is cleared by Etxabeguren close to the goal line.
Granger is swiftly across to clear the danger and smashes into a friendly neighbour's garden. One to collect in the morning I think.
A curling free kick from Dundee bounces around the Jags penalty area before the flag goes up for offside
Dundee with a quick break after dispossessing the Jags in midfield. Curran's low ball across the six yard box is perfect but Scott doesn't gamble to connect in front of goal.
It's a Development League debut for McIntyre as he replaces the injured Ian Stokes
Scott drills it down the middle to give Dundee the lead
Scott is fouled by Stevenson in the box.
Ian Stokes takes a heavy knock after looking to skip past a couple of challenges and looks to be struggling to continue
A short corner routine is poor and Stevenson collects
Kelly's diagonal pass is intended for Duncanson who makes a terrific run but as he gets a touch on the ball, he is met by the commanding presence of the goalkeeper instantly.
Lambert and Curran link up from the set piece. Curran drifts wide but is able to pick out Scott around 15 yards from goal. His powerful shot is blocked by Callum Wilson and Thistle are able to hack it clear to the half way line.
Lambert looks to have broken the offside trap from Curran's pass but the defensive line by Kelly and Granger is excellent and the attacker is flagged for offside.
It's a confident start from Dundee looking to impose their physicality on the Jags side from the off. Neither goalkeeper has been tested yet.
