Fleetwood Town Vs Dundee

The Dee played their second match in Ireland as part of their pre-season trip as they took on English League One side Fleetwood Town in Waterford. The sides went into the break level at 1-1 but a fantastic strike from Luke McCowan seven minutes from time saw Dundee pick up their third win of pre-season.

Dundee opened the scoring in the 26th minute when Josh Mulligan won the ball in a dangerous position and drove forward. Mulligan then played a clever one-two with Zak Rudden before laying the ball off to Zach ROBINSON who slotted home.

Fleetwood levelled the score eight minutes later. The goal came from a corner which was first met by Conor Teale and then flicked into the net by Jack Marriott.

The second half saw few chances for either side and a number of substitutions for both. But seven minutes from time, a moment of magic from Luke McCowan gave Dundee the victory. MCCOWAN picked the ball up in the middle of the park and from 45 yards out saw the keeper off his line and took the shot, which went over the keeper and found the back of the net.

It was another good workout for The Dee in what was a competitive pre-season friendly.
