      Injuries forced Barry Smith into four changes to Saturday's line up, with Lockwood, Webster, Baird and Milne coming in to replace Benedictus, O'Donnell, Stewart and Nish.
      The match got off to a flying start with an early chance at either end. Milne cut the ball back for Conroy, whose shot was blocked. Queens then went close when Burns crossed and Longworth's flick drifted past the post.
      The first goal soon arrived, after four minutes. McAlister played a clever ball through the middle for MILNE to run on and dink the ball over the diving keeper.
      Dundee were comfortably on top and could have extended their lead when Baird crossed for Conroy to blast a volley over the bar.
      The match turned on its head half way through the first half when sloppy defending cost the Dee a player and a goal. A long throw was only half cleared, and the ball was quickly played back in. Anderson flicked the ball on and Longworth was in the clear. Neil McGregor's clumsy foul brought an inevitable red card and penalty, which LONGWORTH converted.
      Barry Smith immediately sent on Declan Gallagher in place of Graham Webster. Dundee's composed passing game pretty much vanished after Queen's opener, and only in occasional flashes did the Dee look three divisions above the Spiders.
      The Dundee defence didn't look comfortable at set pieces and nearly conceded a dreadfully soft second goal, when Burns free kick was allowed to float into the goalmouth where the ball bounced off the shins of the startled Douglas.
      Dundee came close just before half time when Ryan Conroy ran past two players and fired in a fierce 20 yard shot, which was brilliantly turned over the bar by keeper Neil Parry.
      The Spiders came out after half time fired up to take the game to Dundee. Their hard running, high tempo style stopped Dundee settling into comfortable possession. Queen's constant movement helped them see plenty of the ball, but neither side was able to worry the keepers.
      Dundee's best move of the game saw Jim McAlister spin away from two players and race down the right. His cross found Baird running in from the left, but the volley flew too high. McAlister again showed great skill when he made space to run through the middle. His fierce 20 yard shot was beaten down by Parry, hooked clear and the Spiders raced up the park to grab the winner.
      The Dundee defence had looked fairly comfortable in open play, but were caught out horribly as Queen's Park broke. Longworth's through ball found Sean BURNS in an astonishing amount of space to run in and shoot past Douglas.
      Dundee tried desperately to get back into the game, but as they left space at the back a third goal for Queen's Park looked as likely as an equaliser. The centre of defence opened up again for Burns to run in, but Douglas blocked this time.
      John Baird shot narrowly wide after a good move on the left. Ryan Conroy's 18 yard shot was deflected round the post, and Declan Gallagher's header was blocked on the line from the corner.
      Davide Grassi moved into attack for the last few minutes, but Dundee's efforts were frantic and never had the composure to open up the Spiders' defence.
      For the first 20 minutes this looked like it should be a very comfortable cup tie. The penalty incident and red card, which both looked good calls by the referee, totally changed the game. Even one man down Dundee should have been able to handle the situation, but they were never able to dominate Queen's Park, who deserved their win.
      Dundee clearly had better players than Queen's Park, even allowing for the disruption through injuries. Once Queen's Park got back into the game the Dundee players couldn't impose their extra quality on the game and were constantly hustled into conceding possession, and left chasing the hard working home side.
      In the early stages Baird and Milne were linking well and pulling the Queen's Park defence around. After the sending off the strikers took turns to drop deep and cover the right midfield. The result was the sole striker was always too far away from the supporting players and Dundee were largely toothless in attack, while never looking balanced in midfield.
      After five matches without a goal it looked like Dundee's season might be about to pick up when they scored so early. Sadly it was all downhill for Dundee after that.
