Having just completed a convincing win over Aberdeen, Manager Jerry Kerr had no hesitation in putting out the the same side for the difficult trip to meet in-form Hibs. And after only three minutes it looked to have been the right decision when winger Morris Stevenson latched on to a Holland cross to fire the Tannadice side ahead from ten yards.
The scoreline remained that way until the second half when Hibs were awarded a rather soft penalty following Henry's challenge on Graham. Joe McBride converted the spot-kick to level matters.
From that point on it was an uphill struggle for United, especially when Mackay failed to hold an O'Rourke cross and the ball rebounded off Grant's shoulder and into the net. And when the two Stevenson's, Erie and Morris clashed in the United penalty area, 13 minutes from the end, Joe McBride converted a second penalty of the afternoon to put the issue beyond doubt.
