Match Report


The first victory of the season over Raith was anything but a classic despite the boost of an early goal. Kjell Olofsson's stinging free-kick won the points to draw United within striking distance of Aberdeen in third place, but there was little else to enthuse over in what was one of the poorest spectacles of the season so far.
