Dundee North End 1 Dundonald Bluebell 3 (att 89)
North End needed at least a draw, and ideally a win, to keep alive any hopes of avoiding relegation, but after a bright beginning it wasn't to be.
The home side started well, looking determined to get the result they needed. They hit the crossbar early on and looked the better side. But, having got into their stride, in the 15th minute a serious injury to a North End player meant a lengthy delay, for an ambulance, and inevitably changed the game.
Play restarted after a 25 minute hold up, and not long later a mistake by the North End keeper allowed Dundonald to go in front. The visitors scored a second just before half time, and there was no way back for the home side.
Dundonald's third goal came after the break, while Dundee North End had scant consolation from an 83rd minute penalty.
North End Park is a good venue and well-maintained. A large social club dominates one end, to the left a large covered terrace is flanked in either side by grass banking. Another steep grass bank gives a good view from the far end, while the right hand side is flat hard standing.
