2000 - Alloa Athletic 0-3 Dundee Utd | League Cup (2nd Round)

United looked to find solace in the League Cup after struggling to find a win so far in the League campaign. A changed team faced a difficult trip to Recreation Park Alloa as they set about securing their first win of the season. The hosts frustrated the Terrors for much of the first half with chances proving to be at a premium but they did manage the all important breakthrough in the 36th minute. Stephen McConalogue took advantage of a Cairns error...


1964 - Dundee Utd 2-1 Dundee | League Cup (Sectional Tie)

The scoreline was almost unbelievable in the sense that it was hard to believe United only scored twice. In the second half especially, when United had wind and sun advantage, the Dark Blue's defence was all at sea, but the home side failed to capitalise on their monopoly of the play. Dundee had gone ahead after 23 minutes when Alex Stuart crashed in a spectacular 25 yarder. Within two minutes, United had equalised, however, Alec Hamilton handled in the box. Bert Slater saved Jimmy Br...


1981 - Dundee Utd 2-1 Ayr Utd | League Cup (Section 4)

After four straight wins United entered this match knowing that one point would see them clinch section four. However, up next were their nearest challengers, Ayr United, lead by Willie McLean, brother of Jim. There was only one change from the midweek win over Partick, with Willie Pettigrew swapping places with Davie Dodds on the bench.In the fourth minute, a prefect Paul Sturrock cut back was narrowly missed by both Dodds and Ralph Milne, and five minutes later Staurt Rennie had two di...


1992 - Dundee Utd 2-1 St Johnstone | League (Premier Division)

United set about Saints at a terrific rate and Rhodes was in the thick of the action from the very outset of this Tayside derby. In the 13th minute he was beaten by a beautifully executed goal. John O'Neil's neat chip forward found Paddy Connolly and the youngster dragged the ball wide left before clipping the ball into the far corner from an acute angle. It proved to be a fast flowing game with Saints unlucky not to equalise in the 33rd minute when we surv...


2009 - St Mirren 0-0 Dundee Utd | League (SPL)

The Terrors traveled to Paisley on the back of an impressive win over Hearts at Tannadice in their opening match of the new SPL season and with the old Love Street now gone, United were playing their first ever match at the brand new St Mirren Park. To reflect manager Craig Levein's satisfaction with the result and performance of his side against Hearts, he decided to stick with the same starting line-up for this clash with the Buddies. St Mirren decided to hand home debuts to two former United ...
