Matty Henvey was on target twice for Dundee as they kept up their unbeaten run in the Development League. Jack Lambert and Randy Wolters were also on target as the Dees beat Aberdeen 4-2

For all their possession in the opening stages, clear cut chances were few and far between. Randy Wolters had a shot blocked, and Matty Henvey prodded a shot towards goals, but neither troubled Danny Rogers.

The Dees opened the scoring after 25 minutes through Jack Lambert. Jordan Piggott found the wide man with a long ball, and he made no mistake as he passed the ball into the corner.

Mark O’Hara nearly made it a quick-fire double for Dundee, but his effort from 20 yards was pushed away by Rogers.

Bruce Anderson brought the Dons level in first half injury time. A free kick saw the ball bounce around the Dundee penalty area before Anderson fired a shot into the bottom corner of the net.

Three minutes after the restart, Dundee were back in front. Randy Wolters cut in from the right and smacked a shot into the top corner from 25 yards.

Aberdeen took just eight minutes to equalise, with Anderson on target once again. After pinball in the Dundee box, the striker hit a sweet half volley past Ferrie.

Wolters had put Dundee ahead, and the Dutchman played an integral role in the third goal. His free kick was headed in by Matty Henvey, who ghosted into the back post after 58 minutes.

Henvey struck again three minutes later, latching on to a well weighted pass from Taylor Berry and firing past Rogers.

The Aberdeen stopper tipped a sliced clearance from McKenna over the bar before Wolters sent a volley just wide of the mark.

Henvey had the chance to complete his hat trick in injury time after Max Anderson was fouled in the box. The striker stepped up, but saw his effort pushed away by Rogers, as the Dees had to settle for a two-goal margin of victory.

Star Player
Dundee FC
Aberdeen FC
Jack Lambert - The Dundee winger was a joy to watch, pulling off countless tricks and flicks. He took his goal well and will certainly have made an impression on the on looking Neil McCann.
Bruce Anderson - The Aberdeen man was a handful for the Dundee defenders and took his goals well.
