That Ibrox bogey struck again as United slumped to a single goal defeat despite controlling the game for long periods. In the first half, particularly, all the chances fell to United. John Clark went close after a neat flick from Davie Dodds, Stuart Beedie had a header saved just on half time and a free kick from John Clark were the most prominent moments of the half.
Rangers, who replaced Bobby Russell for the injured Cammy Fraser at the interval, were more effective in the second half but still rarely looked dangerous. The winning goal by Craig Paterson was typical of our luck at Ibrox. He latched on to an uncleared corner and his net bound shot was saved on the line by Eamonn Bannon but ricochetted off Hamish McAlpine and over the line!
