Match Report


A return to scoring form by United as the fans welcomed goals with a vengeance against a Kilmarnock side which had no answer to the Tannadice tide of attacks. Two well deserved points these for a United side which showed signs of returning to real form again after several setbacks. Willie Pettigrew and George Fleming notched in the first half. Billy Kirkwood made it three after 50 minutes and then George Fleming wrapped things up for the Tannadice men with seven minutes left.
