Manager's Programme Notes

A goal scored by centre Willie Keith nine minutes from the interval gave a nippy Dunfermline team the points at Tannadice last night. The homesters, after a disappointing first half, pressed almost continuously after half time, but a desperate Dunfermline defence kept them out. Twice in the closing stages centre-half Clarkson kicked clear on the line with the goalkeeper beaten. Dunfermline started off strongly and Keith had the ball in the net after eight minutes, but the whistle had gone for offside. United were finding the lanky Clarkson a stumbling-block, but McKay stuck to his task, and gave the big fellow a worrying time. Too Close Jack Court, playing right-half, was forcing play for the homesters, but tne forwards persisted playing too close. Following strong pressure by the visitors, Dunfermline scored. A bye-kick by United'* trialist keeper was caught by the wind. Keith and Berrie jumped together lor the ball, which fell the centre's feet. He sent in a great shot from 25 yards to give Newman no chance. The second halt saw United hammering at the visitors' goal, 'lime and time again the homesters lookad as they must score, but desperate de fending and over-eagerness on the part the United forwards, kept them out.
