Match Report

In the second leg of the first round Forfarshire Cup at Tannadice. Dundee United beat Montrose 5-2, giving them an aggregate win of 6-3. Twice on the lead in the first half, Montrose put up a good fight, but two quick goals in the last quarter of an hour put the issue beyond all doubt. The first goal was scored in the sixteenth minute when Scobie took advantage of a defensive mix-up. Nine minutes later Crothers put United on level terms with a fast grounder. Newman, on the Montrose left wing, gave the Gable Endies the lead again after 36 minutes, converting a cross from the right from close in. Four minutes from the interval United were awarded a penalty when Lawrie handled a Simpson shot. Dickson scored from the spot. Both teams went all out for the winner after the resumption. Montrose had the ball in the net after 69 minutes, but the referee gave offside after consulting a linesman. Five minutes later Crothers was fouled outside the box. Dickson took the kick and slipped the ball to Kerr who ran in to score. A minute later Crothers scored the best goal of the game. Cutting in from the right, he beat Cook all ends up with a terrific shot. Eight minutes from the end Kerr completed a great night's work by scoring United's fifth.
