1965 - Dundee Utd 3-1 Motherwell | League (Division One)

United ended the season in better fashion than they had begun it by grabbing the two points to hoist their 17 game second half tally to an impressive 28 points—having picked up only eight from the opening half of the term. A smart start by the home men was nevertheless wasted when chance after chance was squandered. But Dennis Gillespie changed all that when he rose to nod in a perfect Dossing cross to edge United ahead. However, the Fir Park visitors hit bac...


1999 - Dunfermline 2-2 Dundee Utd | League (SPL)

Thanks to two Billy Dodds strikes, one from the penalty spot, we were two up and apparently cruising to victory at the end of forty-five minutes. Yet within ten minutes of the second half re-starting, the home side were level. Even then we had enough chances after that to win the game, although Dunfermline too had their opportunities in an enthralling finale....


1982 - Rangers 1-1 Dundee Utd | League (Premier Division)

Normally a point from Ibrox would be regarded as a good afternoon's work, but that was not the case on this occasion. Although Rangers were marginally the better side in the opening 45 minutes United's second half display really ought to have yielded both points. The Ibrox side with their first worthwhile attack scored after 24 minutes. John MacDonald shrugged off a Dave Narey tackle and looked up to stroke the ball in via a post. In the second half the United midfield too...


1971 - St Mirren 2-1 Dundee Utd | League (Division One)

Plenty at stake in this concluding match of the season - United required two points to keep alive hopes of a UEFA Cup spot, whilst the home side were desperate for victory to keep their top grade status. At the end either side were happy with the outcome. Despite having 90% of the play, Saints could rightly feel aggrieved at leaving the field trailing. That came in the 28th minute when Alan Gordon's head connected with a cross from Andy Rolland. Fac...


2003 - Dundee Utd 1-2 Hibernian | League (SPL)

Following the heavy defeat to Rangers, the fit-again pair,of Derek Lilley and David McCracken were recalled to replace Craig Easton and Gary Bollan, the latter dropping to the bench.Tam McManus recorded the first notable chance of the game, scooping well over the bar from close range for Hibs, before a Latapy free kick in the seventh minute was fired into the wall. The woodwork came to United's rescue twice seven minutes later when Grant Brebner's free kick was first headed against the ...
