Match Report


Dundee United were left as the sole Scottish survivor in the Texaco Cup after a great 1-0 victory over Leicester. The goal came early in the second half when a mix up in the Leicester defence allowed George Fleming to nip in and push the ball past the keep from close range.


Leicester pushed forward from there on but could not penetrate the United defence. Glover did have the ball in the net in 72 minutes but it was cancelled due to a hand ball. Then as the game reached it's final stages, England 'keeper Shilton had to make a great save from Traynor.
