1986 - Dundee Utd 5-0 Montrose | Forfarshire Cup (Final)

Without our experienced players, (Ian Redford was the oldest at 27) we collected the Forfarshire Cup in relatively comfortable fashion. Few openings were made in the early stages but once the breakthrough was made the goals flowed, in the 27th minute Dave Bowman slipped the ball to Ian Redford and his curling left foot shot left Charles an on-looker. Two minutes later Dave Bowman was again the architect. His chip found Gary McGinnls who drove the ball low past the keeper. Seven minutes after the...


1984 - Dundee Utd 5-2 Hearts | League (Premier Division)

Any disappointment that existed in the Tannadice camp following that UEFA Cup exit was quickly banished with this all action attacking display. Without Paul Sturrock; Tommy Coyne, Stuart Beedie and Alex Taylor were reinstated to the side. The three newcomers were a highly influential factor in this emphatic victory. In the 7th minute an Eamonn Bannon drive was beaten down by Smith but Paul Hegarty, following up, scored. Then Alex Taylor was t...


2007 - St Mirren 0-3 Dundee Utd | League (SPL)

Three second half goals gave United a convincing victory at Love Street today. Strikes from David Robertson, Noel Hunt and Willo Flood secured three points against a lacklustre St Mirren side that ended the game with 10 men.The first half was poor and neither goalkeeper, including Euan McLean who was in the side instead of the departing Szamotulski, had anything to do. The best chance of the half fell to United midfielder David Robertson. A high hanging cross to the back post was headed ...


2012 - Dundee Utd 4-4 Inverness CT | League (SPL)

Both sides started today’s match on the back of impressive victories in their respective derby matches. With five points separating the sides before the game, United knew a home win would edge them closer to Inverness and also more than likely push themselves into the top six for the first time since the early stages of the season. Having scored eight goals in their previous two matches without reply, Manager Peter Houston elected to stay loyal to the team that were victorious at Dens Park. It w...


1990 - Hibernian 0-0 Dundee Utd | League (Premier Division)

An unchanged side from the one which beat Celtic was fielded against Hibs. However. John Clark replaced Michael O'Neill on the bench. Hibs entered this fixture in the wake of two heavy defeats at the hands of Motherwetl and Celtic and were obviously anxious to avoid a hat-trick of defeats. Those reversals apart Hibs have been finding goals very difficult to come by. Their tally of nine in the previous 16 games, being one less than Darren Jackson's haul! Unfortunately, neither of these statistic...
