Match Report

A quite astonishing strike by Gary McSwegan halfway through the first period of extra time carried United into the semi-finals of The Coca-Cola Cup. It was also sweet revenge after the 5-1 mauling in the league game 17 days earlier with United's disciplined performance being the bedrock for this first ever League Cup success over the Ibrox Club.
