"Falkirk took a real trouncing at Brockville Park, where Dundee, splendidly urged on by Ure, were the complete masters", wrote the Herald in its match report. Dundee shook off their indifferent League Cup form to register an opening day win in the League Championship. Smith and Cousin gave Dundee a 2-0 half time lead which was added to by Wilson in the second period, with Falkirk notching a late, late consolation. Aberdeen, however, stole the show by surging to the top of the table with a 7-0 win over Stirling Albion.
The result at Brockville will have given some cheer to the Dens faithful given the team's unlikely prgression in the League Cup.
