teamline notes
  • Teamlines per DEP.
  • OH has William Goudie (6), Thomas Gibbons (8) and Robert Campbell (9) at the expense of Tom Hyslop, "Grant" and William Reid. DEP preview (28/12) said that "a new man of considerable ability is expected to fill the centre-forward position" (sure enough William Reid signed from Kilmarnock on the eve of the game), and they also reported that PT would be "without Gibbons who is unable to get away from work". "Grant" seems a straight swap for the tied-up Gibbons, the inverted commas suggesting he was a trialist, perhaps under a pseudonym.
dubious goals panel
  • JL credits A. Robertson with 2 of Dundee's goals, but this is not supported by DEP or GH (he's not even in the line-up according to the former). Boyd is not mentioned as a scorer by JL, yet both the SC and GH have him scoring the first. Our goals sequence comes from the GH.
attendance notes
  • 4000 (OH); 6000 (JL)
