Dunfermline got off to the worst possible start when Willie Callaghan knocked a Duff touch out into his own net, but the home team rallied and managed to go in at the interval leading. Robertson equalised after Mitchell raced to the bye-line and crossed, and just before the break Bert Paton put the Pars ahead from an Edwards cross.
Mitchell had an opportunity to increase that lead just after the interval, but somehow missed an empty goal. Seemingly on easy street Dunfermline then slumped, and ex Cowdenbeath player Andy Rolland scored the equaliser. The same player, Andy Rolland, got then got the winner to give Dundee United another victory at East End Park. The United defeat means that Dunfermline had not recorded a win over the Arabs at East End Park since September 1963. There was a blow to Dunfermline's European hopes when Bert Paton was stretchered off in the second half of the Dundee United game with a double leg break. The nature of the break means that it will be at least August before he is ready to return to action.
