Dundee 4-2 Falkirk- Match Report.
All the fours for Dundee
Dundee grabbed their fourth win on the bounce with and closed the gap on second-placed Falkirk with a 4-2 win.
Nicholas Riley produced a perfect cross from the right after eight minutes to tee up Gavin Rae for a simple headed finish, before Jake Hyde reacted quickest to Steven Milne's header hitting the bar to double the lead three minutes later.
Falkirk were gifted a way back into the game when Rhys Weston turned into his own goal from Kallum Higginbotham's cross.
Dundee restored their two-goal advantage after the break, though, Hyde poking home from six yards soon after Milne had struck the woodwork again with a long-range effort.
Jay Fulton gave Falkirk hope once more when a rasping drive found the bottom corner after 74 minutes before Milne grabbed the goal he deserved late on with a tidy strike that sealed Dundee's victory.
