An experimental Kilby side lost by the odd goal in three in a highly entertaining contest against a young Dundee X1 at K-Park on Wednesday night.


Two first half strikes gave Dundee a healthy advantage at half-time, but Kilby struck back through James Brough early in the second half.


EK went into the match minus Craig Howie, BJ Coll, David Proctor and Craig Hastings, giving Martin Lauchlan the chance to cast his eye over four trialist players, as the Kilby gaffer attempts to make some additions to bolster his squad ahead of the new Lowland League season.


James Brough came close for Kilby early on, but headed wide after a fine cross from Winter, as Kilby started the brighter of the two sides.


The impressive visitors, spurred on by presence of Dundee First Team Management due of Paul Hartley and Gerry McCabe, were clinical on the counter attack and netted twice in quick succession midway through the first half to give EK a mountain to climb.


Kilby hit back shortly after the break, when Brough (pictured)  headed home, and a very entertaining game swung from end to end, with EK almost equalising late in the game, but Ryan Gemmell's shot was saved, and Dundee claimed a 2-1 victory.


East Kilbride will now face Tynecastle FC at K-Park on Saturday at 2pm, in what will be their last friendly match before the start of the Lowland League season on 30th July.
