Scottish side Dundee, as they held on to a 2-1 victory in the Scottish League Cup on Wednesday night.
Ugandan striker Sadat Anaku made a winning debut as his new side Dundee United secured their first win of the season at the fifth attempt on Wednesday evening.
Barely 48 hours after former boss Jack Ross was relieved of his duties following a record-breaking 9-0 defeat to Celtic FC, Anaku was drafted into the matchday squad at the Tony Macaroni Arena.
Steven Fletcher and Ian Harkes’ first-half strikes were enough to secure victory despite Livingstone pulling a goal back with 12 minutes to go.
Anaku, who completed a move to Dundee last week came on in the 84th minute, replacing Fletcher, and made a good introduction of himself.
The 21-year-old was full of energy and verve drawing a couple of fouls as the team tried to run down the clock and see out the victory.
Anaku will hope to kick on from his performance on his debut and help his new club that is currently bottom of the Scottish Premier League.
Dundee has suffered four consecutive losses, drawn only one of their first five league games, and lies bottom of the division.
Meanwhile, Dundee reached the quarter-finals of the Scottish cup where they will meet Kilmarnock on October 18.
Anaku and Dundee’s immediate task in the league lies against Motherwell at Fir Park, with the game pitting together compatriots as Bevis Mugabi turns out for Motherwell.
