COLIN Nish’s debut as 19s boss got off to a disappointing start in Broughty Ferry yesterday afternoon, with his young charges losing 3-1 to Dundee.
The match was played in tropical conditions with both sides serving up a good game despite the sweltering heat.
Sons found themselves 1-0 down after 27 mins when Lumsden was beaten by a close range effort but just ahead of the half-time break drew level via a volley by Madden.
Three minutes into the second half, Dundee restored their one goal advantage and despite a spirited effort by the youngs Sons, the game was put beyond their reach in the closing stages when their hosts scored from a well taken free-kick.
Nish (pictured above, right), who starred in Saturday’s first team win against Morton, was understandably disappointed at the outcome.
He said: “We played well in patches and at nil nil we missed a couple of chances which in the end cost us dear.
“We tired near the end of the game and credit to the lads of both sides for playing in conditions that were at time best described as tropical.”
