2023 - Falkirk 0-1 Dundee Utd | League Cup (Group B)

Immediately after, Falkirk hit on the counter and Jack Walton had to get down quickly to prevent Callumn Morrison from opening the scoring.Ten minutes later, Ross Docherty will feel he could have done better with a shot fired wide of the post after the ball broke to the midfielder just outside the area.




1982 - Herfølge 1-2 Dundee Utd | Friendly

United wound up their Scandinavian Tour with a game against Herfolge, managed by former Dundee winger Hugh Robertson. After the beating heat of the earlier games there was relief with the overcast conditions making things much more pleasant. Davie Dodds opened the scoring in the 19th minute and when Alex Taylor scored a second immediately after the interval, a comfortable victory appeared in prospect. However, the Danish


2000 - Dundee Utd 2-1 Everton | Friendly (Testimonial for Maurice Malpas)

The normally restrained Fifer, whose calculated and controlled approach had for twenty-one years been his football trademark, made no attempt to hide the emotion he felt as he walked through the guard of honour created by his fellow professionals and made his way to the centre circle to acknowledge the applause of both sets of fans in a crowd of over 6,000.Man of the moment Maurice Malpas was applauded onto the pitch by both sides, but once the match started, almost inevitably, Everton d


1995 - Dundee Utd 1-0 Swindon | Friendly

This unusual clash was settled by Craig Brewster's 36th minute goal, but United might well have won by more against a side which has nose-dived from the Premiership to the Endsleigh Second Division in successive seasons. Although the Tangerines dominated the early part of proceedings, playing some impressive one-touch football, it was Swindon who almost went ahead on the halfhour mark. Thorne met Gooden's cross and directed his header down into the ground and up and over the bar. That in


2002 - Alloa Athletic 1-1 Dundee Utd | Friendly

The Tangerines won their sixth warm-up match for the new season when they beat hosts East Fife thanks to goals from Derek Lilley and Craig Easton. Analysing the match earlier today, Manager Alex Smith stated: “After a somewhat slow first half, we really came to life after the interval when we lifted the pace of the game creating a number of fine chances and scoring two goals. Lilley scored first from eight yards after clever work by Duff and Smart, and then Easton, on a counter-attack, followed


2020 - Dundee Utd 1-1 Kilmarnock | Friendly

United continued the build up to next week’s Premiership opener with a 1-1 draw in the final scheduled closed door friendly versus Kilmarnock at Tannadice. Cammy Smith scored the United goal in an entertaining and high tempo fixture.The Terrors started in fantastic fashion and a high press from kick-off caused the Kilmarnock trialist goalkeeper to mishit a clearance direct to Shankland. The striker found Cammy Smith on the edge of the area and he drove into the box before sliding the bal


1992 - Derry City 0-0 Dundee Utd | Friendly

Teenager Andy Cargill was included in the party to travel to Derry City as was Billy McKinlay, now recovered from injury.


2015 - Dundee Utd 0-1 Watford | Friendly

The early stages of the match had a familiar pre season friendly feel, both teams looking relatively comfortable in terms of possession yet lacking the intensity to create reasonable opportunities at goal. It wasn’t until just before the 20th minute mark for the first real chance to open the scoring, Scotland international broke swiftly on the right flank before delivering a well placed cross into the path of Jose Manuel Jurado, who could only steer his effort wide just wide of the post.The long


2005 - Tayport 2-0 Dundee Utd | Friendly

A young United side took to Canniepairt tonight to play an experienced Tayport side as Dave Bowman gave his charges a stiff test in their pre-season build up. Although he may have been disappointed by the result, the Junior Cup holders certainly tested the mettle of a United side that was aged from 16 to 21 years. Manager Gordon Chisholm was joined by his assistant Billy Dodds and 1st team coach Tony Docherty to monitor the youngsters, some of whom will be hoping to break into the first team squ
