Match Report

Dundee United ended their U.S. stay in fine style at Jersey City on Saturday night. They beat Juventus, of Italy, by 1-0, revenging the Fairs Cup defeat they received from the Italians two years ago. The only blemish of the night came near the end, when Andy Rolland and Juventus centre-half, Ernesto Castano, were ordered off for fighting.

It means an appearance for Andy before the Referees' Committee, who are usually more lenient with overseas "crimes" - but there is no certainty about that. United's goal came two minutes from the interval from Dennis Gillespie. Forcing on the play in an attacking role, Dennis hit a rising shot from 20 yards past the keeper.

There were several clashes between the players on the second half as Juventus tried hard to get on terms, urged on by excitable Italian fans. Dave Hogg had two good efforts which might have put United even further ahead. His first just missed, the other was cleared at the last gasp by Juve sub 'keeper Anzolin. The Tannadice team finished good winners. It was the best result of the whole trip - and they'll be in fine fettle for the home-ward journey which starts the day following this match.
