When these two sides meet a fast and furious clash can almost be guaranteed and this was no exception, especially in the opening half. After being on top in the early stages without creating much by way of chances, United fell behind to a superb strike by Stuart McKimmie, whose 25 yarder dipping shot gave Hamish McAlpine no chance of saving. That lead, fortunately, only lasted three minutes thanks to a superb piece of probing by Stuart Beedie. His pass found Paul Sturrock in space and after sidestepping Alex McLeish, Paul slotted the ball past Gunn.
The second half was severely punctuated by a series of fouls and only rarely was either goal under threat.
