Match Report

The match was delayed for five minutes to allow the healthy crowd into Easter Road to witness the third meeting between the sides to see who could progress to the next round after this 2nd Replay. United remained unchanged from the side that drew with Rangers two days before.

Hibs started the match in determined fashion and were eager and sharp in the tackle. Hibs first real foray towards the United goal was cut short by John Holt who tripped Ally MacLeod 20 yards out. The winger got up himself to take the free kick but the effort went well wide. United started to get more into the match with Eamonn Bannon and Ralph Milne both becoming more involved and forcing the Hibs defence backwards. Firstly Bannon swept passed Bobby Flavell but he couldn't control his cutback and keeper Jim McArthur collected the ball. Next for United, Milne flicked a ball wide out right to full back Derek Stark who swung over a cross, Dodds mis-timed his jump and the ball bounced off the unsuspecting Ally Brazil into McArthur's hands. Hibs thought they had taken the lead in the 35th minute when Gordon Rae outjumped everyone to head a Ralph Callachan cross goalwards only for Hamish McAlpine to react smartly and get across his goal line sharply and clutch the ball. David Dodds missed a great chance after 39 minutes when he kicked more of the ground than the ball when only placed six yards out. Billy Kirkwood was then booked for a scything tackle a minute later on Flavell.

Hibs started the second half again on the front foot with Arthur Duncan cutting the ball back and Rae reacted to slow to allow Paul Hegarty to clear. In the 53rd minute United broke the deadlock when Kirkwood swung a ball over for Dodds to head back across goal to the unmarked John Holt who blasted the ball beyond McArthur. Hibs made a substitution replacing MacLeod with Eric Schaedler and in 69 minutes had a penalty claim when Duncan went down in a crowded penalty area. Just as Hibs thought they may get back into the match United broke in 77 minutes and from Ralph Milne's low cross from the left Davie Dodds steered the ball home. Two minutes from time United scored a third after Eamonn Bannon scored from the penalty spot after Davie Dodds had been pulled down by Schaedler.
