The biggest difference between the two teams was Hibs skipper Pat Stanton. United, with Archie Knox making his debut, repelled Hibs' furious onslaught only to find themselves trailing to a magnificent Pat Stanton goal, his unsaveable shot giving Hibs a 32nd minute lead. The tangerines began to dictate matters in second half, only for Hibs to seal victory with two goals in three minutes near the end.
It was another spectacular goal too as John Brownlie hammered a shot high into the far corner after 77 minutes to kill off United's chances. Three minutes later Arthur Duncan took a pass from McEwan to shoot under the diving body of Hamish McAlpine. Before the end Hazel hit the post and Hamish McAlpine brilliantly saved from Cropley as Hibs put in a grandstand finish.
