Dundee 7-0 Forfar- Match Report

Dundee out of Betfred Cup despite seven-goal romp

Dundee hammered Forfar in the Betfred League Cup but it was not enough for a place in the last 16.

Paul Hartley's side finished qualifying Group A with a 7-0 rout at Dens Park, leading Garry Bollan's League Two visitors 3-0 by half-time before hitting another four after the break.

Paul McGowan put them on their way before Michael Duffy, a Greg Stewart double, Julen Etxabeguren, substitute Rory Loy and Yordi Teijsse added to the scoreline - but Dundee's seven-point tally was were not enough to finish as one of the four best second-placed sides.

Dundee took the lead in simple fashion on 18 minutes

Stewart released McGowan, who beat the Loons' offside trap before calmly lifting his finish over the head of advancing keeper Grant Adam.

And they doubled their lead in the 35th minute when on-loan Celtic attacker Duffy's 25-yard rocket from Stewart's pass flew high past the helpless Adam.

Stewart killed the contest six minutes before half-time with a close-range finish through Adam's legs after his initial header had been saved.

Etxabeguren made it 4-0 on 55 minutes

Teijsse's header from William's corner was saved on the line by Adam, but the Spaniard bundled home the rebound.

Stewart hit the fifth with an unstoppable finish high into the net from 22 yards after a backheel from substitute Craig Wighton.

Loy got in on the act with a 72nd-minute diving header from Cammy Kerr's cross, before Teijsse completed the rout with a back-post header for his first goal for the club.
