PreSeason Games

Dundee 1, Bolton Wanderers 2, Dens Park, Friendly, 14-July-17

Dundee lost to  2-1 to English Championship Bolton Wanderers on Friday night at Dens Park, first half the visitors looked much stronger and they scored two well taken goals to lead at half-time. Dundee did make some changes in the second half and they came close a few times. Paul McGowan scored  with 14 minutes to go. They pushed trying to level the game but found the Bolton keeper in fine form. Bolton fielded a total different team in the second half. 

It was a good work out , and I thought that Dundee played some nice football. The squad is a lot stronger in terms of players will need to play to keep the jersey.




Brechin City 0, Dundee 2, Glebe Park, Friendly, 11-July-17

Dundee kept their unbeaten record going with a comfy 2-0 result first half goals from Craig Wighton and Paul McGowan put Dundee in control, next up for the dark blues is a visit from Bolton Wanderers on Friday night. I will be able to go as it's one of my days off. They beat Arbroath 2-1 at Gayfield last night.

Arbroath 1, Dundee 2, Gayfield Park, Friendly, 8th-July-17

Dundee came back from 1-0 down to win 2-1 at sunny Gayfield yesterday, two later goals from El Bakhtaoui and Randy Wolters got the winner with just 7 minutes rom the end. Again most players got a run out , they struggled first half  with Arbroath going ahead from a penalty. Second half was much better with Scott Alan looking a very clever player with his touch and passing skills. A good work out for the team.




St Mirren 1, Dundee 3, 2012 Paisley Stadium, Friendly, 4th-July-17

Dundee beat St Mirren 3-1 in the first game, two goals from Darren O'Dea in the first half, and Marcus Haber headed home early in the second half put the dee 3-0 up. St Mirren pulled a goal back on the hour mark. Dundee held on to secure the win, reports say it was a close game with all the players getting a run out.
