      Make no doubt about it, the 2-1 score line flattered the tangerines. Dundee should have won this by a canter.

      After a disappointing display and result on Saturday against Ross County, this was the perfect tonic for the Dark Blues who from the get go, were impressive all over the pitch.

      By the time we eventually went ahead thanks to a screamer from El Bakhtaoui, we should have been three or four goals to the good.

      Despite United levelling the score against the run of play and giving us a few nervy moments, we would score the winner in the 64th minute from a fine and very rare goal from Paul McGowan. It was what we deserved and it would have been criminal if the scoreline went any other way.

      "I thought we absolutely dominated the match from start to finish.” said McCann.
      "We knew United, like every team will do, would have a little spell and they have some good threats.
      "Disappointed with the goal, but overall I thought that was a flattering scoreline.
      "I was so happy for Faissal because he's got thunder in his boots and he just needs to believe in himself a wee bit more and feel he belongs here.
      "But, my goodness, he is a threat, but I thought, to a man, we were absolutely brilliant.
      "I am delighted we've got a home tie and we've pulled the strongest side in the country, but if you want to win it, you've probably got to beat them sometime."

      Aberdeen Football Club (also known as The Dons) is a Scottish professional football club based in Aberdeen, Scotland. They compete in the Scottish Premiership and have never been relegated from the top division of the Scottish football league system since they were promoted in 1905, despite twice finishing within the relegation zone. Aberdeen have won four Scottish league titles, seven Scottish Cups and six Scottish League Cups. They are also the only Scottish team to have won two European trophies, having won the European Cup Winners' Cup and the European Super Cup in 1983.
      Formed in 1903 as a result of the amalgamation of three clubs from Aberdeen, they rarely challenged for honours until the post war decade, when they won each of the major Scottish trophies under manager Dave Halliday. This level of success was surpassed in the 1980s, when, under the management of Alex Ferguson, they won three league titles, four Scottish Cups and a Scottish League Cup, alongside the two European trophies. Aberdeen were the last club outside the Old Firm to win a league title, in 1984–85, and also the last Scottish team to win a European trophy. The team has enjoyed less success since this golden era, though a 19-year wait for a major trophy was ended by winning the 2013–14 Scottish League Cup.
      Aberdeen have played at Pittodrie Stadium since their inception. The ground currently has a capacity of 20,866 and was the first all-seated and all-covered stadium in the United Kingdom. Pittodrie was also the first football stadium to feature a dug-out, an invention of player and coach Donald Colman.
      The club's colours have been primarily red and white since 1939; before this, they played in black and gold vertical stripes. In modern times, Aberdeen have almost exclusively played with all-red strips with white detailing. Aberdeen attract support from the city and surrounding areas, as they are the only senior team within a wide area. Aberdeen have no geographically close rivals; their nearest neighbours at the same level are in the city of Dundee.
