    FT: Dundee 3-2 Dunfermline

    Speaking to BBC Scotland Dundee manager James McPake: "Take away the first five minutes, for 85 mintues I was delighted with the players. To start a game like that isn't good enough we know that but character we showed to one get back into the game and then go on and win it was brilliant."

    "It's a massive win for us. It was really important tonight that we got the victory and the fact that we found a way to win tonight is the big thing for me"

    Quote Message: It was a fantastic game, it had everything. It was a slow start from Dundee but Second half they were completely dominant and the last two performances from them have been oustanding

    FT: Dundee 3-2 Dunfermline

    Dundee striker Jason Cummings tells BBC Scotland: "I hadn't touched the ball and we were 2-0 down. It shows the character of the boys, it was a big game for us tonight.

    "We've got players here capable of getting promotion. We're confident. You look at the players we've got, we've got a lot who have played at a higher level. We've just got to believe."

  5. FULL-TIME Dundee 3-2 Dunfermline

    An incredible comeback as Dundee fight back from two goals down to move above Dunfermline to third.

    The Pars remain in the playoffs but only on goal difference and will be very disappointed with that collapse to their playoff rivals.

    In truth the away side did very little going forward after Craig Wighton had doubled their lead early on and Dundee were deserved winners.

  6. Post update

    Dundee 3-2 Dunfermline

    Ewan Henderon is involved again, exchanging a neat one-two before firing towards goal from the edge of the box.

    It deflects off Lee Ashcroft and Adam Legzdins collects easily.

  7. Post update

    Dundee 3-2 Dunfermline

    Dunfermline finally produce some efforts of note as Fraser Murray sees his free kick tipped over the bar.

    Moments later Ewan Henderson shows his quality with a fantastic turn and cross along the six yard line but there aren't any takers for the away side.

    They keep the pressure on though, as Henderson crosses again and it comes to Crystal Palace loanee Scott Banks who tries to create a yard of space before shooting but Christie Elliot does brilliantly to block.

  8. Post update

    Dundee 3-2 Dunfermline

    Dundee show they can still provide a threat on the break as Jason Cummings lets fly from around 25 yards out.

    It's too close to Owain Fon Williams, given the mood he's in tonight, it will need to be a lot better beat him again.

  9. Post update

    Dundee 3-2 Dunfermline

    Dunfermline have started to get their foot on the ball a little more but are yet to create any concrete opportunites in this second half.

    They've got just over ten minutes to try and salvage something from a game which looked like it was in the bag after their searing start.


    Dundee 3-2 Dunfermline

    Owain Fon Williams. What more can you say?

    If it wasn't for the Dunfermline keeper, Dundee would be well clear here.

    Jordan Marshall floats a free kick to the back post which Danny Mullen meets well only for the cat like Fon Williams to make a brilliant diving save.

  11. Post update

    Dundee 3-2 Dunfermline

    Lee Ashcroft makes it three goals in two games after his double last week against Alloa.

    You'd think Dunfermline would have done their research on the former Pars defender.

    But how much can you do when he prevails in the air so often?

  12. CLOSE!

    Dundee 3-2 Dunfermline

    Dundee aren't letting up here as they threaten from another corner.

    Liam Fontaine gets on the end of this one, angling his shot towards goal, but Josh Edwards is on hand to block it on the line.

  13. GOAL Dundee 3-2 Dunfermline

    Lee Ashcroft

    Dundee's fightback is complete as Lee Ashcroft dominates at a corner once more to head in.

    He's been a nuisance all game with his commanding ariel presence.

    It's been an unbelievable effort from the home side to turn things around.

  14. GOAL Dundee 2-2 Dunfermline

    Danny Mullen

    Dundee are level as Danny Mullen follows up Lee Ashcroft's header.

    Owain Fon Williams had once again done brilliantly to keep out the first effort but Mullen was on hand to tap in.

    Dundee 1-2 Dunfermline

    Wow. Fon Williams brings out an incredible save to keep out Danny Mullen.

    The striker was played in by Jason Cummings but the Welsh keeper gets his fingetips onto the ball to push it onto the bar.

  16. Post update

    Dundee 1-2 Dunfermline

    Dundee start the second half as they ended the first, on the front foot.

    Jordan Marshall swings in a cross which goes all the way over to Paul McMullan. He unleashes a powerful strike but it's well blocked by Josh Edwards.

    He's not in the squad tonight due to an accumulation of yellow cards but Dundee midfielder Charlie Adam popped onto Sportscene to give his thoughts on the half

    Quote Message: It was a poor start from us but we reacted in the right way and that third goal gives us a foothold to come back in the second half. We need to get the next goal and see where we go from there

  20. Cool guys don't look at explosions

    HT: Dundee 1-2 Dunfermline

    In case you haven't seen it yet make sure to skip back through on the iPlayer to see Craig Wighton's exquisite chip.

    There was so much ice in his veins he wheeled away celebrateing before it had even dropped into the net.
