Dundee Utd 3 Dundee 0
Dubliner Gavin Gunning, right, was among the goals as Dundee United eased to a 3-0 victory in the first competitive Dundee derby in seven years at a packed Tannadice yesterday.
Former Blackburn hopeful Gunning’s header after 14 minutes put Peter Houston’s men ahead before Johnny Russell netted twice in three minutes just before the break to give the Terrors an unassailable lead.
Both sides had to play the final 20 minutes with 10 players after Russell and Dundee captain Stephen O’Donnell both saw red for violent conduct.
United broke the deadlock after 14 minutes when Dundee goalkeeper Rab Douglas came to collect a Willo Flood free-kick but made no connection, giving Gunning the easiest of tasks to head in at the back post.
