Match Report


The Tannadice fans were let down badly. The hitherto pointless Leith were full value for their victory.

Floundering, footering United never gave in, but thats about all that can be said for them. It was early apparent the enforced changes had robbed the homesters of a great deal of poise and punch which knocked Aberdeen off their perch a fortnight ago.

Leith, too , were shakey in the first few minutes but they found their confidence when they found their opponents were out.

Two lovely goals by Watson set them on the road to success. In each case the centre out-manouvered Jimmy Simpson and put the ball well out of Kellar's reach.

United chopped and changed after the interval, but could not find a winning combination. The visitors were especially well served at half back. Anderson eclipsed United's trialist centre, and Meikleham showed himself still capable of the artistic touches he was noted for in his United days. The trialist right half, a sturdy red headed lad, played throughout with rare spirit. Watson and Robertson were the best of the forwards.

United were ragged all over. Simpson was over worked, and most of the forwards were too fond of the ball.
