Match Report

No less than five inches of snow had been cleared from the Tannadice pitch, which exposed a treacherously icy surface - but the referee gave the go ahead in conditions which would never be sanctioned today! United (then in B Division] took a first half the lead through Maurice Milne, but Dundee recovered after the break. establishing a lead with goals from lan Stables and George Merchant. It seemed the Black and Whites would have nothing to show for their efforts, but their never-say-die spirit saw Milne strike again just four minutes from the end to earn a replay - which the Dark Blues won 3-0.
