Match Report


United won their last home league match of the season with a convincing win over Hibs. After a run of penalty misses recently, United captain and goalkeeper, Hamish McAlpine, took responsibility for the penalty award in this match. He stepped up to confidently slam home his first ever penalty kick, the first of many for the charismatic 'keeper.

The penalty came after 13 minutes and just 6 minutes later Henry Hall was on hand to double United's advantage. Having taken the early advantage, United never looked like letting Hibs back into the game ans ran out 2-0 victors to end the Tannadice season on a high.
