Fine display hands City first defeat

Lowson United .................3

Dundee City .......................1

After a two week break, Lowson United played Dundee City in the league and produced a great performance to give City their first defeat in the league.

City started the better side and pressed Lowson back but with the defence looking solid they did not trouble Munro in the home goal.

Lowson came more into the match and created some decent chances. A Gary Smith free-kick was headed on by Duncan for Howie’s effort hitting off the ‘keeper and cleared by a defender off the line, then another Smith shot was blocked.

Duncan scored with a header though the referee gave offside.

Lowson scored on 40 minutes with good play by Richard Hampton as he set up Rory Crighton to shoot past the ‘keeper for a deserved lead at half-time.

Ten minutes into the second half, David Massie scored with a great effort into the top corner. City were playing some decent football but found the home defence and midfield on top of their game with Nisbet and Duncan outstanding.

At the back, Duncan should have scored with a header with his effort going over the bar, after some good play by Calum Howie he set up Hampton to score a third.

A good run and cross by Scott Nicoll found Crighton in front of goal with his effort saved by the ‘keeper. With Suttie and Godfrey on for the hard-working Howie and R. Hampton, City scored with 15 minutes to go when a forward shot found the top corner.

Lowson created a few more chances but failed to take them. Thomson came off with Cammy Howie on for the last 15 minutes for some playing time after six weeks out injured.

The manager was delighted with the performance.
