Match Report

Although the eventual outcome was contrary to their allegiance, the United fans voted this game as one of the most exciting ever contested at Tannadice. Four goals behind with only twenty minutes remaining the Tangerines staged a tremendous fightback to come within an ace of sharing the spoils. George Maxwell put Killie ahead from the penalty spot before Ian Fleming added a second to give the visitors a comfortable and deserved interval lead. And it appeared all over for the home side when Eddie Morrison and then Ronnie Sheed added to that advantage soon after the interval. However, United pulled themselves off the floor with a Jackie Copland goal and when first George Fleming and then Tommy Traynor found the net, the fat really was in the fire. But despite their great late rally there was to be no fairy tale ending for United.
