Goals in either half from Craig Beattie and Ryan Conroy saw us fall to a third successive Championship defeat.

Dundee opened brightly and in three minutes O’Brien headed clear a Conroy cross under pressure from Macdonald and then Niley shot just wide after good build-up work down the right by the visitors.

In ten minutes we attacked through McKenzie and he found Hemmings well placed 18 yards out but the striker duffed his kick and Letheren gathered easily.

Stewart forced a good save from Letheren in 15 minutes but five minutes later, at the other end, a nice pass from Conroy set up Macdonald but his control let him down six yards out and Flynn gathered.

With 25 minutes on the clock Stewart burst into the Dee’s box and his shot was held by Letheren, but ten minutes from the break Dundee took the lead.

McKenzie’s pass went to Davidson who fed the ball to Craig Beattie who hit a 30 yard first time shot which caught Flynn a few yards off his line and the ball crept under the bar.

Dundee threatened two minutes into the second-half when Conroy’s corner was met by Gallagher and his header was clawed out by Flynn with Dees claiming a goal, but assistant referee, Morag Pirie, was having none of it.

Flynn then pulled off a point blank save from another Gallagher header but at the other end Hemmings nodded just wide.

With 28 minutes left Riley broke through and his shot was well saved by Flynn and at the other end Hemmings might have picked out an unmarked colleague rather have a go himself and his shot was blocked by Gallagher.

The second goal came with just nine minutes left when a good Dundee move down the centre of the park following a throw, saw the ball switched to Ryan Conroy who cleverly clipped the ball past the outrushing Flynn.

There was still time for Morton to fire a raking shot just too high but it would have been too little too late.
