Dundee suffered a disappointing 1-0 defeat against Morton in Greenock, in September, losing out to a header by Peter Grant on the stroke of half time. Despite endless possession in the second half the Dark Blues couldn’t break down Morton, whose hard work and dogged defending continually frustrated The Dee.
