Match Report

When Ralph Milne opened the scoring a minute from the interval, he not only ended United's lean spell in Premier goals, but set United on the path to our first win in four League outings.

Although United dominated almost the entire first 45 minutes, the interval approached with the scores level. Then Eamonn Bannon picked up a loose bait inside his own half. ran half the length of the park before delivering the perfect chip, for Ralph Milne, who cut inside before hammering a right foot shot home.

The home side came more into things after the interval, but their hopes were dashed when Derek Stark popped up at the far post to steer home the second.
