      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."

      Dens Park or its name new name due to a sponsorship deal, The Kilmac Stadium at Dens Park has been the home to Dundee since 1899 following the clubs move from Carolina Port.

      The record attendance at Dens Park occurred in 1953 against Rangers when a massive 43,024 supporters fill the stadium.

      Th main stand was designed by Archibald Leitch and was opened in 1921. Apart from the South Enclosure and the Provost Road end having a roof put over it’s head, the ground had not seen much of an overhaul to it until 1999 when both stands behind the goal were demolished and new modern stands were built.

      The ‘Provie’ Road end was then renamed The Bobby Cox Stand and the TC Keay End, The Bob Shankly Stand. These stands were erected in just 82 days as the club battled to meet the Scottish Premier League’s new seat-capacity guidelines. The club were under pressure to meet the demands of the Premier League or face expulsion from the top-flight but in November 1998, the club were given the green light to procced with the construction early in the new year with the Scottish Sports Council Lottery Sports Fund and the Football Trust fronting half of the £2.6 million needed for the project.

      It had been announced in 2016 that our American owners had purchased land at Camperdown with intent to build a new stadium for the club. This was confirmed by them in early 2017 with the plans for the new layout being released to the public in September later that year.
