  • European Cup Quarter Final 2nd Leg: Dundee 2-1 Anderlecht 1963

    Since we've already looked back at the programmes from the first and second round home ties of our european cup run in '62, we may as well continue and look at dundee's programme from our 2-1 win over anderlecht in the quarter final of that tournament.

    We went into this match on the back of an excellent victory against the Belgian champions Anderlecht in the Heysel Stadium. Such was the demand and interest in this tie, Anderlecht decided to move from their home ground Émile Versé Stadium to the National stadium which seen 64,000 supporters attend the game.

    A double from Alan Gilzean and strikes from Alan Cousin and Gordon Smith gave the Dee a comfortable 4-1 lead to take back to Scotland.

    The return tie at Dens Park a week later seen a 40,000-sell-out crowd turn up to cheer on the day to a potential Semi-final place in the prestigious European Cup.

    Anderlecht started proceedings the hungrier team an eventually took the lead just before the half hour mark when their talisman Jack Stockman slotted home.

    The second half seen Dundee settle into the game and slowly start to pressure the Belgium champions as they tried to make a breakthrough which they eventually did.

    Alan Cousin levelled the scoring with just over ten minutes left to go to ease the relief that had settled into the Dens Park crowd then with eight minutes left, Gordon Smith's goal meant that Anderlecht's European journey was over and the game would end in a 2-1 win for the Dee, 6-2 on aggregate.

    Dundee were in the Semi-Final's along with huge names such as Benfica, Feyenoord and AC Milan. Imagine saying that in this day and age?

    Of course, we would be drawn against the Italian Champions AC Milan for a place in the European Cup Final and the chance to lift the trophy at Wembley Stadium.

    We will look at that programme from the AC Milan game next week but in the meantime, I hope you've enjoyed another edition of 'Dundee Programmes From The Past.'

      With the pressure mounting on Neil McCann at fever pitch and the rumour mill speculating that anything other than a win today would lead to his sacking, Dundee dug deep to secure their first win of the season.

      To round up a pleasant day for the Dee, they also managed to keep a clean sheet in this moral boosting victory.

      Dundee still sit bottom but they have plugged the gap between themselves, St Mirren and Motherwell to just one point, who both lost today.

      Andy Boyle gave Dundee the lead in the first half on the 38th minute when he headed home at the back post and despite Hamilton hitting the bar twice, Kharl Madianga wrapped up the victory when he made it two in the third minute of injury time.

      For once, Dundee fans can look forward to watching SportScene tomorrow evening.

      Dundee beat Rangers for the first time in 25 years in a 2 - 1 win at Dens Park.
      Dundee changed formation and tactics for this game against Rangers and it paid off. The Dark Blues played a 4-4-2 formation and moved Wighton and O'Hara to the side with devastating effect.
      Dundee nearly scored within the first 60 seconds after a great run and cross from Wighton down the left, but O'Hara header went wide of the target.
      Mark O'Hara (13') and Kevin Holt (41') made it 2 - 0 before the half time. Rangers Gardner pull one back on the 62nd minute to make the final score 2 - 1 the Dark blues.

      Dundee were held to a 1 - 1 draw by the visitors to Dens Park Kilmarnock.

      Kris Boyd opened the scoring within the first 10 minutes, thanks to some terrible defending which let Scott Bain on a one to one with the veteran striker who slotted past Bain and into the empty net.

      Kevin Holt made it 1 - 1 in the 27th minute as he swept the ball past three oncoming Kille players.

      Inverness CT come back from 2 - 0 down to earn a point at the Caledonian Stadium.
      Dundee took the lead through Marcus Haber (37') and Darren O'Dea (43') from well taken set pieces in the first half.
      However, in the second half ICT fought back to a well earned point at home. ICT were awarded two penalties and both from Julen Etxabeguren (Which he was booked for one). McKay scored the first (53'), but Bain saved the second.  Greg Tansey scored on the rebound in the 79th minutes to share the spoils.
      The Dark Blues could consider themselves lucky and some good goal keeping from Scott Bain helped keep the score at 2 - 2.
