Ross County 1 - 1 Dundee

Saturday 17th December 2011
C McMenamin (82)S Milne (35)

County saved by late goal

A late Colin McMenamin strike salvaged a point for Ross County as they drew 1-1 with 10-man Dundee.

Dundee took the lead 10 minutes before the break when Jamie McCluskey set up Steven Milne to drill his shot into the bottom corner.

Their joy was short-lived, however, as Stephen O'Donnell was given a straight red card two minutes later for a dangerous foul on Iain Vigurs.

The home side pressed after the break and Rocco Quinn went close from long range, but his effort crashed back off a post.

County's pressure was rewarded nine minutes from time when Vigurs passed into the path of McMenamin who slotted into the bottom corner, the draw ending a run of 10 successive wins for the league leaders.

Brittain banned for County

Leaders Ross County will take to the field in the First Division match of the day against second-placed Dundee without suspended captain Richard Brittain.

The Dingwall side will also be without the injured Marc Fitzpatrick, Russell Duncan and Sam Morrow as they look to secure their 10th league win in a row.

Manager Derek Adams said: "I watched Dundee last Saturday and I was impressed, particularly with their attacking threat.

"There were over 5,000 fans at their game and it would great to have a bumper crowd at this one as well as it should be a great advert for this division.

"Both clubs will go into it thinking this would be a great game to win and we are looking forward to it."

Dundee have injury doubts over striker Steven Milne and midfielder Stephen O'Donnell.

The Dark Blues have already been weakened by the loss of in-form winger Nicky Riley through a one-match ban.

But boss Barry Smith said: "While it is disappointing Nicky is unavailable, we have players that can come in and do a similar job.

"Our intention in this game is simple. We are going to Dingwall looking for the three points to keep our good run going and close the gap between the sides.

"They have been going well and have their own reasons for wanting to win so it should be a great game."
