An away day with the Pansies taking the short trip from the Theatre of Dreams Glenesk Park to take on neighbours Lochee Harp who are playing their home matches in Dundee’s very own La Bombonera Downfield Park while the new Beechwood Park is being built.
Only goal difference separates the two sides going into this fixture but Violet have been in good form away from home so far. Expect plenty of 50-50 tackles and hopefully a goal or two.
Above the Prince of Beechwood Park(He told me to say that) tearing up the wing with his blistering pace and fancy footwork.
It’s gonna take more than nimble footed wingers to beat the Pansies cat between the sticks today.
No holding back in the challenges when there’s a chance to move three ahead of your rivals.
Violet take the lead! Not much action in front of the Harp goal in the first half but when it does come it’s in the form of a goal.
Violet start the second half well turns out that somewhere in the match I’ve missed a sending off. Doesn’t matter as Harp still look like they’re more than able of getting something.
Down to ten? Make that nine! Harp’s captain takes the long walk back to the dressing room after a straight red.
The game’s starting to open up for Violet now surely making their numerical advantage count.
That’s the second! Made the goal himself and surely wrapping up all three points for the Pansies and moving clear at the top of the league.
Harp do pull a goal back towards the end of the match, if you’ve read previous match reports by myself you’ll know I rarely get the goals. The Dundee Violet keeper did pull off a couple of good saves to keep the Pansies in front and that’s how the game finished. 1-2 Violet and top of the league on goal difference ahead of Luncarty.
