Unusually for an encounter with Rangers, match was of academic interest only, other than it presented an opportunity for to record their first victory of the season over the Ibrox outfit.
Unfortunately, despite almost constant pressure, apart from some ten minutes or so. Rangers retained that unbeaten tag, although even the most die-hard Ibrox supporter would have conceded that the better side lost. Robert Prytz opened the scoring from the penalty spot just before half-time.
Peter McCloy pulled off a string of remarkable saves to deny United and then Ally McCoist broke clear to score a second near the end. Substitute Davie Dodds did back that lead in the last minute but it was too late to affect the final outcome.
