  1. The Dark Blues hosted Dunfermline in today's Championship league game. Dundee opened the scoring courtesy of an own goal by Devine in the 15th min. The cheering hardly had a time to die down when Dow equalised in the 16th minute. Hemmings made it 2-1 in the 25th minute, and McGowan made it 3-1 on the 34th minute. Dundee came out the traps in the second half and scored within the first minute of the restart. Kiltie was sent off in the 62nd minute and then came a few minutes of madness by the Dundee defence. Nesbit scored in the 69th minute and Martin on the 72nd minute. Dundee looked shaky for the remainder of the second half when they should have been more than comfortable but for some terrible defending. Dundee 4 - 3 Dunfermline
  2. The ref against Dunfermline was Kevin Clancy. How did you rate his performance in this game?
  3. Two Danny Johnson penalties proved decisive as Dundee rescued their opening match back in the Championship at East End Park.
  4. James McPake can’t wait for the Championship to start at Dunfermline on Friday.
  5. The last time our two clubs met was also in this competition a few years back which unfortunately for us seen the Fife come out on top with a 3-0 victory at East End Park. Like most clubs in Scotland, it's been a busy summer for the Pars so we spoke to Pars Review to get the lowdown on his team. The Pars fell at the first stage of the play-offs last season despite from what I seen, having plenty of opportunities to make it to the semi-final. Undoubtable a disappointed end to the season but how would you rate your finish last term? We did very well in the fourth quarter of the League season after a very poor period between November to early March. Midfield was the issue and once the new trio of midfielders signed during January all settled in, results and form improved. All 3 of those players (Tom Beadling, James Craigen and James Vincent) are now back at our club for this season, although Beadling is injured and Vincent is also carrying a slight injury, restricting him to one sub appearance this season. We went into the playoffs with some confidence but a harsh red card in the first leg of the Dundee United 2 leg quarter final (which was overturned a week later on appeal) cost us a good chance of winning the home leg. We went 1-0 up at Tannadice and then missed a glorious chance to make it 2-0. United then scored twice and we were out. It’s been a busy summer for Dunfermline with plenty of players leaving and going. What players have you been disappointed to see leave and who has excited the fans the most upon their arrival? I think a certain Fassial El Bakhtaoui might get a mention. It's always disappointing to lose your captain (Callum Morris) plus the two top goal scorers (Nicky Clark and Declan McManus), plus one of the main attacking threats of the final few weeks of last season, Fraser Aird. The manner of Aird's departure was very disappointing, jumping ship to United after he told our club he would sign a new deal with us. Morris knocked back a new contract to play in England, then a few days later signed for Ross County! All 4 are good players but I am impressed by their replacements and genuinely believe we have a better squad now. Faissal is a great example of a player who 'belongs' at a certain club; he is loved at Dunfermline and we are delighted to have him back. Myles Hippolyte looks to be a good signing too, and the players who returned from last season, mentioned already, plus new arrivals such as the Longridge brothers, Aidan Connolly and Danny Devine, have all played well so far. We were told by Thistle fans that Devine was a poor player but he has looked very good so far. Your league campaign got off to a good start against Peterhead on Tuesday. How did Dunfermline play in their first competitive match of the 2018-19 season? We played very well in the second half against Peterhead last night. Some of the quick passing movements involving Higginbotham, Connolly, Longridge and Hippolyte was great to watch. The Championship looks like it will be very competitive this season but what are the expectations among the support with regards to the league and cups? The Championship will be very tough this season; at least 6 clubs have hopes of promotion. We have improved our league position every season under Allan Johnston and hope/expect to challenge for the title and to (at the very least) secure a top 4 finish again. You have James Vincent and Fassial El Bakhtaoui on loan from us but they will miss the tie on Sunday. Will they be massive losses to the team? The team has done well in pre-season and in the one Betfred game without Vincent and Faissal - Vincent has one sub appearance this season, while Faissal hasn't played at all so far. If both were fit and available, they would be an asset but with the midfield doing well and with new signing Hippolyte scoring last night, plus a goal from striker Andy Ryan, we can cope without the 2 players mentioned. Finally, What's your score predictions for Sunday? I'd be very happy with a draw; I have great memories of some tremendous Dundee v Pars games at Dens over the past 25 years. The clubs are similar in many ways but I have to make Dundee favourites given your Premiership status. I was at your game at Stirling at the weekend and your new players all looked very good. McGowan also impressed, with everything going through him in midfield. PREVIEW THE DEE got off to a flyer last weekend when they put four past Stirling Albion at Forthbank Stadium without reply. Sofien Moussa took his tally in this competition since signing last year to seven goals when he grabbed a double. Jean Medny also got off the mark as his Dundee career began with a goal after Moussa set him up to slot home. The pass wasn’t the best but Mendy was able to control the ball and slot it past the defence and goalkeeper between the sticks. Craig Wighton capped off a fine second half performance when he added No.4. Despite a few shaky moments in defence in the first half and a double-save from Jack Hamilton at the beginning of the second, the result was never in doubt against Stirling. DUNFERMLINE had to wait until midweek to get their campaign underway and did so with a 3-0 victory over Peterhead at East End Park. New signing Myles Hippolyte opened the scoring in the first half and despite Peterhead hitting the post and then following up the rebound by striking the bar, the Pars would put this tie to bed in the dying minutes through a Karl Higginbotham penalty and a solo effort from Andy Ryan. TEAM/INJURY NEWS Dundee were dealt the bad news when midfield maestro Glenn Kamara picked up a knock in training and will miss Sundays tie and may well miss the rest of the league cup ties. The player is wearing a protective boot which the club said is a precautionary measure.

  7. The club has confirmed that the out of favour midfielder James Vincent has joined first division outfit Dunfermline on loan until the end of the season. The 28 year old ex-Inverness CT player signed a pre-contract with Dundee along side fellow Inverness player Danny Williams in March 2016.
  8. The Dee were unchanged from Saturday's match against Aberdeen. The Pars made only one change, Falkingham coming in for Byrne. The Pars gave Dundee a scare after only 30 seconds when Cardle shot wide after Moffat's run had opened up the Dee defence. Dundee also threatened early on when Julen Etxabeguren met Gary Harkins free kick at the far post and a good save from Murdoch. The Spanish defender also went close with a header from a corner. However, it was the home side who looked more likely to score from open play. Scott Bain had to beat away Cardle's fierce shot after Moffat had headed the ball down. Dundee's defence was looking worryingly uncomfortable and conceded a simple goal after 10 minutes. Martyn's cross from the right found EL BAKHTAOUI unmarked 10 yards out and he scored with a neat volley inside Bain's right hand post. Dundee nearly pulled off a quick equaliser when Ross swept a fine pass out to McGinn, whose hard, low cross across the goalmouth was just too far in front of Hemmings. The Dark Blues were now much improved, but they had another huge scare after 21 minutes when Kevin Holt tangled in the penalty box with his former Queen of the South teammate Michael Paton. It looked a fair shout for a penalty, but Mr Finnie infuriated the home fans by waving play on. Dundee were able to impose themselves on the midfield for the rest of the half and put the home defence under some serious pressure. Paul McGinn was being allowed a huge amount of space on the right, but Dundee couldn't exploit the Pars' defence's suspect positioning. James McPake came closest when he burst forward and flicked Gary Harkins' pass onto the top of the crossbar. Dundee started the second half strongly and quickly equalised. McGowan's pass was headed across the penalty area by McGinn, Ross dummied and HEMMINGS smashed the ball home from 10 yards. The Dark Blues were looking much more dangerous now and pressed Dunfermline back relentlessly. From a corner Murdoch had to paw a Hemmings header out from under his bar. The keeper then saved brilliantly, just getting his fingertips to a McGowan shot arrowing for the top corner. Julen Etxabeguren was injured as he crossed from the byline and was replaced by Dylan Carreiro. The Dark Blues now reverted to 4-4-2, but the full backs were still pushing forward keenly. Stewart went close with a curling shot from 18 yards after swapping passes with Carreiro. Hemmings had a great touch and turn in the penalty area, but Murdoch saved again. Only a minute later Hemmings burst through again, but his lob sailed wide. Murdoch again saved the Pars, pushing Harkins'low drive wide, and seconds later turned a ferocious 25 yard shot from Holt over the crossbar. The Dark Blues were piling forward looking for a winner, and were caught out by a sucker punch goal on the break after 85 minutes. The defence wasn't in place to deal with El Bakhtaoui's cross from the right and CARDLE had time to chest the ball down and squeeze the ball past Bain. The Dee keeper nearly managed to stop it, but the ball trickled over the line. Dunfermline might have grabbed a third goal as the Dark Blues pushed forward frantically, but his shot was deflected into Bain's arms. Dundee lost all their defensive shape and poise as they pushed forward desperately. McGinn got clear on the right and Fordyce headed over his own bar. Murdoch saved yet again from McPake's low shot, and then had to claw out Stewart's dangerous cross into the goalmouth. Deep into injury time Dunfermline broke out of defence. With the Dundee defence in disarray EL BAKHTAOUI had all the time he wanted to pick his spot and score number three with the last kick of the ball. Dundee started this game slowly and Dunfermline were much the more dangerous side in the early stages. After riding their luck, especially with the penalty appeal, Dundee then took charge and put the Pars under the cosh. Failing to turn a succession of second half chances into a win and throwing away two goals when they were dominating the game makes this a desperately frustrating defeat. Dundee were much the better side for most of the game and the Pars were hanging on by their fingertips in the second half. The home side had offered no threat till Dundee lost their poise chasing the win. Crashing out of the cup at the first stage was an entirely avoidable and self-inflicted blow. There can be no complaints, however. Dundee had so many chances to win, but gifted soft goals to the hard working Pars. Dunfermline took advantage of Dundee's dreadful careless, converting their chances, and for that reason deserved the win.

  9. Young lads in action today at home against Dunfermline (Game played up in Montrose). Interesting line up and answered a few questions regarding Klok not being ready or match fit, as he played for them today. Line up: Ferrie, Dryden, Rice, Higgins, Waddell, Klok, Clark, Ross, Williams, Vincent, I Smith Subs: Gourly, Smyth, Coupe, M Smith. Nick Ross scored both goals today. Maybe this was to help with Klok's match fitness and sharpness?
