Match Report

Until then Firhill had scarcely been United's happiest hunting ground for league points. But all that changed in a devastating Tannadice display, to which Thistle had no answer at all. A Dave Narey rocket which rebounded from the underside of the crossbar and clear signalled the pattern and Andy Rolland went one better soon afterwards with a brilliant 20-yard goal. Andy Gray added to United's lead with two minutes of the first half remaining.

Jackie Copland made it three soon after the interval. Doug Houston grabbed a fourth before United sent on their latest signing Paul Hegarty in place of Gray. Five minutes from the end a dazzling United performance was completed when Dave Narey sent a diving header past Alan Rough. Also of note was the introduction of Paul Hegarty who made his first appearance in a United jersey.
