Match Report

Fierce as this cup-tie was, United at least had the satisfaction or establishing a lead for the second leg at Tannadice next Wednesday.

Even more impressive was the fact that United had to come from behind. Newly reinstated, Hamish McAlpine's first task was to retrieve John Robertson's deflected free kick from the back of the net. Although Hearts were rarely seen in attack they still retained that lead at the interval.

John Clark, later voted Man of the Match, won the game for United with two headed goals. First he headed in a Richard Gough cross, and then John Clark promptly repeated the feat a few minutes later, this time from a Paul Hegarty cross.
