Those highlights tie in with my memories of that team. It wasn't silky football, but they were fit, hard running, tough and they'd keep going. On their day they could run over the top of most teams in Scotland. We beat Rangers (champions that season) 1-0 at Dens and hammered Celtic 4-1 after being a goal down at half time. We beat St Mirren (the Scottish Cup winners) three times out of four, including a 6-3 win at Dens. Hamilton were beaten 7-3 at Dens on the last day of the season to bring up 100 goals. We blew Clydebank away in the cup quarter final at their ground. It was 4-0 and we steamrollered them in a blistering opening half hour, scoring three times. We really should have won the cup that year.
The team in that derby seems to have been 4-3-3.
Forsyth, Smith, Duffy, McKinlay
Rafferty, Shannon, Angus
Jack, Harvey, Stephen
There's no sign of John Brown or Bobby Glennie.
This must have been one of Ray Steven's last games before he went to France. I'm happy to admit I wasn't hugely impressed with Jocky Scott's signings to boost the attack. I though Keith Wright might be ok in time, but he was a gamble. Tommy Coyne seemed a bizarre move. File me under clueless.
