Match Report


United earned a commanding lead to take into the 2nd leg of this Bell's League Cup, 3rd round tie. However, it took them 38 minutes to find a way through the Queens defence, with Willie Pettigrew slotting home after a goalmouth scramble.


Substitute Davie Dodds scored with a header from a Stark free-kick in 77 minutes, and Paul Sturrock made it 3-0 with 5 minutes to go. The scoreline slightly flattered United, but the tie was more or less over with the second leg still to play at Tannadice.
