Match Report


A game reminiscent of the previous Wednesday night's U.E.F.A. tie at Tannadice where, once again, despite constant pressure, United failed to find the net. The game was marked by the first appearance in a tangerine shirt of Eamonn Bannon, United's £165,000 buy from Chelsea, signed only the day before.
