Dundee 2 Cowdenbeath 2

Posted March 26, 2011

Cowden produced a first class away performance at Dens Park and can count themselves extremely unlucky to only leave the City of Discovery with a draw but the point increases the gap over bottom side Stirling Albion to 10 points.

Jimmy Nicholl's team had the division's form team on the back foot from the first minute and played some terrific football with Stevie Crawford turning back to the clock to put on a masterclass in the art of centre forward play.

Crawford opened the scoring after only 9 minutes with a looping header from  a Marc McKenzie cross but Dundee equalised against the run of play through Jack Hyde (24) after the Cowden defence was guilty of ball watching.

The Blue Brazil deservedly regained the lead in the second half after a fanastic move ended with Jon Robertson providing the assist for Scott Linton (57) to bullet home a header at the back post. The goal would have been a fitting winner but Hyde scored his second with 15 minutes remaining to secure a share of the points after a defensive mix up left the trialist striker with a tap in.

The young side - missing 7 injured players - included Danny Mackay as an unused sub with the 19-year old making a welcome return to the first team after long-term injury. Fellow teenager Thomas O'Brien was recalled from his loan spell with junior side Kelty Hearts due to the injury crisis and the youngster put in an impressive display in the centre of defence after coming on at half-time.
