The Dark Blues
  • Murray Leads Dundee To Saftey

    Dundee secured their premiership status for next season while putting ross county's into jeopardy with a 1-0 win up in dingwall.

    Dundee went into this match knowing that just one point would be enough to ensure their survival and they achieved this by taking all three thanks to a Simon Murray header.

    With results elsewhere going the Dark Blues way, even if they had been defeated they still would have stayed up this year. This victory though, made the joys of staying up that much sweeter after a few weeks of uncertainty that had the fans fearing the club being dragged into the bottom two.

    County on the other hand will head into the last game of the season knowing that they will either be relegated or at best, finish second bottom in a play-off spot.

    Neil McCann was understandably delighted at the result and thought the three-points were well deserved.

    "We could've won more handsomely, I felt, had we shown more composure," he said. "We knew the need for Ross County to push, take more risks and that's what happened.

    "We caught them on the break a number of times; we just didn't take advantage of it.

    "We defended really well, although they were putting us under a lot of pressure.

    "David Ngog had a chance, there was the suggestion of a penalty, but over the piece, we were well worth our three points.

    "I'm really proud of the players because it's not a nice position to be in. It was still alive tonight, although it'd have taken a massive goal swing and results to put us in the play-off position, but we had to take care of our own business.

    "I wanted five [post-split] wins - we've got three out of four and we'll go into Saturday's game to try and make it four out of five."
