Match Report


United failed again to hold onto a home lead in this afternoon’s Bank of Scotland Premier League match and in doing so, they remained at the foot of the League table.

Coach Paul Hegarty brought in David McCracken and Jamie McCunnie to his starting line-up. The Maryhill side gave a starting berth to new Italian signing Daniele Chairini while former Tangerine Jamie Buchan also started for the Jags. Another former United player, Paul Walker was on the bench.

United took an early lead in the 12th minute through a superbly headed goal from Steven Thompson, his sixth of the season, the breakthrough coming via a Stuart Duff cross.

The goal appeared to inspire United and they finished the half deservedly ahead.

Partick came back into the match during the second half with United struggling to find their first half rhythm. With twenty minutes remaining, Hegarty replaced Thompson with Jim Hamilton. It made no difference to the flow of the match and with five minutes remaining, Waddell headed an equaliser for Thistle.
