Match Report


Another memorable game for the fans in that the derby win over their city rivals was seldom in doubt after Paul Sturrock latched on to a Willie Pettigrew assist in 22 minutes to send United ahead. Substitute Billy Kirkwood added another with Derek Stark completing the win in the second half.
