The third game in the League Cup sectional stage of the 61-62 season was another disappointing one for the Dee. Harley scored two for Thirds in Glasgow, and Wishart obliged with an o.g.: Smith and Gilzean netted for Dundee. The result left Dundee 4 points behind Rangers with the Gers just needing to beat Thirds in the next game to be sure of a quarter final spot.
Meanwhile our city neighbours managed a thrilling 5-3 win over Aberdeen, and St Johnstone managed a 0-0 draw away to Partick to remain top of their section ahead of Hibs and Celtic in 2nd and 3rd respectively.
