Match Report

A return to form brought the point necessary to secure third spot, although we had to come from behind after being reduced to ten men following the dismissal of Stewart McKimmie five minutes before the interval.

His first booking followed dissent at the award of the penalty which brought the home side's opener. Steven Pressley was adjudged to have fouled Tommy Coyne as he rose to head a cross clear and the former United striker swept home the penalty kick. This breathed new life info a previously muted Motherwell performance.

However, ten man United fought back strongly in the second half and deservedly grabbed the equaliser when Steven Pressley returned a header back into the danger area and Lars Zetterlund was on the end of a header out to score with an angular shot from 14 yards which went in off the inside of the post. Robbie Winters with a shot on the turn might have notched the winner shortly afterwards, but the point was sufficient to confirm that United would finish third at the end of the season.
