Defeat on opening day

Dundee’s Championship season got off to a bad start with a 6-2 defeat against Hearts at Tynecastle. The real damage was done in a disastrous first half. Hearts went into a two goal lead through Michael Smith and Josh Ginnelly. Charlie Adam pulled a goal back, but further Hearts goals before half time, from a Liam Boyce penalty and Stephen Kingsley, left the Dee with an impossible task. Dundee improved after the break and Danny Mullen came off the bench to notch the Dee’s second.
