Match Report


United dominated the opening stages and the Bankies had a narrow escape in the 12th minute. Paul Walker fed Ben Honeyman who whipped in a shot which Matthews couldn't hold and only Currie's intervention as he scrambled the ball away for a comer prevented Paul Walker giving United the lead. Honeyman then shot narrowly over. The young United newcomers were doing themselves no harm at all with Stuart Gilmour firing fractionally wide after a 20 minutes which had been totally dominated by the Tangerines.

It was 26 minutes before the Bankies really posed a threat, but Steve Kerrigan's spectacular hitch kick fell kindly for Kelham O'Hanlon. The home side by now had some more into the game and Sutherland first timed a pile-driver from 30 yards but it was straight at Kelham O'Hanlon.

Half time arrived with the game still goalless, but with the Bankies showing signs of beginning to dominate after United's good opening. This was confirmed immediately after the re-start with Kelham O'Hanlon tipping over a 25 yarder trom Grady, But from that point, either side looked like scoring as play was confined to the middle area of the park. However, with 20 minutes left, Neil Caldwell wasnt too far off target after the Bankies defence opened up in front of him. Grant Johnson then hit a long range shot which Matthews only held at the second attempt.

There were just seven minutes left when the goal that was to decide the tie arrived and it was the United's youngsters who combined to score. Stuart Gilmour sent over a cross from the left which Ben Honeyman sidefooted home from 8 yards.

There was no real worries for the 200 or so United fans as the tangerine comfortably saw out the last few minutes to qualify for the semi-finals of the League Challenge Cup.

CLUB COMMENT "I was pleased with the way all the youngsters performed" - MAURICE MALPAS
