Match Report


The replay went ahead at Tynecastle against both clubs' wishes but United put any distractions of that behind them as they attacked Dons right from the start. Indeed we could have been two up by the time Paul Sturrock nodded us ahead after only five minutes.

Aberdeen failed to pose any great threat in the opening 45 minutes with an Eric Black effort their only serious attempt. After Aberdeen lost Cooper, United struck with a decisive goal. Ralph Milne ran half the length of the pitch before crossing to Stuart Beedie who cracked in a volley of the most ferocious velocity.

United, too, were reduced to 10 men when Davie Dodds was dismissed for a foul on Willie Miller. Nothing other than an easy passage looked in store until Ian Angus fired in an accurate volley to give United and their supporters four anxious minutes until the final whistle.
