      Despite the scoreline suggesting that this tie was close, Dundee eased by our neighbours into the Quarter Finals of the League Cup.

      Dundee spurned many chances during the 90 minutes and could have easily of scored four, five or six goals in this game but at the end of the game, the victory and passage into the next round of the cup was all that mattered.

      Faissal El Bakhtaoui put the Dee ahead with a wonder strike but United would level the scoring before half time with Billy King finding the net.

      We found the winner through the unlikely Paul McGowan who's shot sailed into the net. After being the target from United fans in quite a few derbies, it was his turn to hand it back, something they moaned about for days.

      Dundee United claimed top spot of Group C in the League Cup after securing the bonus point on penalties after the match had ended 1-1.

      Paul McMullan gave the Arabs an undeserved lead just before half time but after the break, Mark O'Hara drew the sides deservedly level.

      Roarie Deacon had a glorious chance to win the match for the Dee but the winger hesitated and Harry Lewis saved his shot. Jack Hendry would then see his header hit off the base of the post right at the death so it was then onto penalties to decide who would win the bonus point.

      Deacon would miss the decisive penalty for it to end 4-3 to the Terrors.

      Lawrence Shankland opened the scoring after the Dundee defence were unable to clear their lines from an Ayr United goal kick.
      Substitute Sofien Moussa was then sent off after a second bookable offence following a 15 minute cameo and the opposition took full advantage of this when Shankland added a second.
      Our misery was further compounded when Moffat got in on the act to smack home a third in a day to forget for everyone associated with Dundee 
      "The result flattered us," said McCann.
      "It’s Difficult to put my finger on it. It’s not often in management or playing in football that so many things are wrong in one game. Poor passing, poor application, we looked flat and everyone was waiting for someone else to step up for us."
      "The thing is we’ve played really well in the league and not taken chances, and the puzzling thing is we’ve prepared well and had a game plan.
      "We come out and put on such a weak perforce and it’s a sore one. It happened against Dunfermline as well so that tells me it’s a mindset thing.
      "I’m very angry about Moussa’s red, we had a word with him when it kept happening, and we can’t afford for things like that to happen.
      "Then Genseric has lost all his composure, he’s obviously hurting but it doesn’t help anything. 
      The whole team and myself let the club down today, we should have enough, like we showed against Aberdeen last week and we didn’t show any of it today. And it hurts because we’re out the cup now.
      "That is not acceptable and I have to apologise to the supporters."

      Our last tie against the Honest men in this competition happened all the way back in 1991 and it was the Ayrshire team who proceeded into the next round with a 4-2 victory.

      DUNDEE qualified for the last 16 by finishing up as the second-best runner up along with Queen of the South, St Mirren and Partick Thistle while Ayr won their group just like Ross County, St Johnstone, Dunfermline, Livingston, Motherwell and Kilmarnock. All these teams were joined by Celtic, Hibs, Aberdeen and The Rangers who all received a bye due to partaking in European action.

      Our season hasn’t gotten off to the start that we would have hoped it had but the signs are there that if a striker (one or two, I’m not fussy) and a new left back can be brought in, we will be looking quite decent this season.

      Defeats to St Mirren and Aberdeen has left us will nil points when it could have easily have been, at a minimum, four points. Other fans may say otherwise but that’s what I’ve seen through my dark blue tinted glassed.

      The Dee need the win after the last two weeks and with players such as Karl Madianga, Elton N’Gwatala and Jesse Curran finding their feet In the first team and exciting the fans, there is an expectation within some of us that we can go out there, put on a good display and find that killer touch in front of goal that has eluded us.

      Midfielder Lewis Spence is fit after being taken off at half time against Aberdeen while Glen Kamara is back in training and may make an appearance.

      AYR UNITED got their league cup campaign off to flyer with four wins out of four, scoring twelve and only conceding one. Lawrence Shankland showed the type of form that helped Ayr to the League One title last term that also attracted the interest from Dundee by netting seven of them including two hat-tricks.

      The Ayrshire team have also started off their Championship campaign brightly. They defeated recently relegated Partick Thistle on the opening day by two goals to nil and followed that up with a goalless draw up in Inverness against Caley Thistle. There are worse ways to start the season and Ayr have certainly hit the ground running.

      Lawrence Shankland is the obviously the main man to watch out for with nine goals to his name already this term but Dundee should be wary of his striking partner Michael Moffatt who scored thirteen goals in the previous season, contributing also with seventeen assists.
