Match Report

After seven weeks without a win, United came back to form with a bang with this resounding win over a strangely subdued Celtic side. Only six minutes had elapsed when Paul Sturrock slung over a cross which Davie Dodds met to prod past Bonner and into the net via a post. Celtic rarely threatened and United took another step to victory just before the interval when Richard Gough's long pass upfield found Eamonn Bannon in the clear and although his first attempt on goal struck Bonner, Eamonn followed up to steer the ball into the vacant net.

Any lingering hopes Celtic had of salvaging anything from this game were completely quashed in the 68th minute with the best goal of the game. Ralph Milne slipped an Aitken challenge and his cross was bulleted past Bonner by Eamonn Bannon's diving header.
