ArticlesMatch report from The Scotsman, 9th February 1920
[...] Dundee had a considerable amount of bad luck in their game against Celtic at Dens Park. Celtic got a goal in the first minute which Watson, the Dundee goalkeeper, should have saved. McLean crossed a low ball, and Watson unaccountably allowed it to roll over his hands into the net. To what extent this goal affected the final result it is difficult to say, but Watson at least never fully recovered from its unnerving influence, His subsequent play was very shaky. Dundee's misfortune was increased when Nicoll was injured, The centre half gallantly endeavoured to keep his place, but was limping badly, and in the second half he began in the outside left position, but finished in his original role. The Celtic scored immediately after the interval through McInally, who made full use of a bit of very slack play by the Dundee defence. Dundee almost went to pieces afterwards, and it was not surprising when Cringan beat Watson for the third time. Dundee rallied, and McLaughlin scored a pretty goal, but even after making the fullest allowance for the fact the luck of the game was with Celtic, vistory went to the cleverer team.
