It was a strong United side which took on Montrose at Links park. There were only two changes from the starting eleven at Brechin. Brian Welsh who came in for John Clark and Alex Cleland who replaced Chris Myers.
As at Glebe Park, the Tangerines dominated the game. In the very first minute Larter saved a Christian Dailly header at his right-hand post and the under 21 skipper was to be very much involved when we did go ahead in the 14th minute. Alex Cleland spread the play with a ball out to Christian Dailty on the left and after cutting in, his cross was diverted into his own goal at the near post by Jim Smith, the former Dundee and Aitrdrie defender.
United faced a stiffer examination by Montrose than at Brechin and a series of corners caused a few anxious moments in the Tannadice defence. However, United went two ahead when Paddy Connolly sent Dave Bowman away down the right and his cross to the far post where Christian Daiily rose to head the ball over Larter's outstretched arm.
Haro almost pulled one back immediately after the re-start, but United were soon back buzzing around the home goal ten minutes into the second half, Christian Dailly angled a shot just past the post after a good solo run.
On the hour mark, three United substitutes were introduced and five minutes later, Alan Main twice had to perform heroics, first palming away Grant's grounder and then blocking a Mark Craib shot with his feet.
Towards the end, United pressed hard for a third and a fine move involving Christian Dailly and Robbie Winters ended with Larter saving Roy McBain's first time shot but at the end United had to be satisfied with a two goal winning margin from a display with which Manager Ivan Golac described himself as "reasonably happy.'
