Match Report


Although the second half was evenly contested. United should have held a comfortable interval lead with a raking Phillip effort coming back off the bar besides four gilt-edged chances which were scorned. Lennox, too, hit United's bar immediately after Edvaldsson headed the only goal but United's pressure should have meant at least one point from this fast, entertaining game
