In season 1973/74, League Cup matches were used to experiment with the offside rule. Players could not be offside in the area of the park enclosed by extended 18 yard lines. This match had a 1.30pm kick-off time because it was played during the minors' strikes of 1973 and the government had banned the use of floodlights. Snow, rain, sleet and the early kick-off time resulted in a poor attendance of only 27,974. Lisbon Legend Tommy Gemmel captained the Dundee team.
