Goals from John Smith and Jesse Curran were enough for Dundee to see off Ross County in the Development League. Dundee lined up with Josh Meekings in an experienced defence, and were rarely troubled by the reigning champions as they moved six points clear at the top of the table.
Dundee were bossing possession in the opening stages, but did little to trouble Ross Munro in the County goal. The keeper’s only test came when he had to catch Matty Henvey’s attempted lob after 13 minutes.
Henvey is the young Dees top scorer, and he set up strike partner John Smith for the game’s opening goal. Henvey clipped the ball into the box, giving Smith a simple header past Munro to give Dundee the lead.
Jack Lambert had the opportunity to double the Dees advantage after 36 minutes when Jesse Curran set him up inside the box, but his low shot was easily gathered by the diving Munro.
