2007 - Aberdeen 2-4 Dundee Utd | League (SPL)

A whirlwind first half of football at Pittodrie gave United the platform to see off Aberdeen and take the points from this afternoon’s Premierleague match. An early Jon Daly penalty, a Noel Hunt header and a Greg Cameron double gave United a 4-2 lead six minutes into the second half, with Steve Lovell and a Darren Mackie penalty providing Aberdeen’s goals.Aberdeen welcomed back Ricky Foster and Michael Hart from suspension as Jimmy Calderwood made three changes to the side which defeated...


1979 - Dundee Utd 2-0 St Mirren | League (Premier Division)

Billy Kirkwood returned to the United side to face St Mirren after the midweek defeat to Hearts. The young striker replaced Bobby Robinson, who moved out to the bench. Davie Dodds was also added to the side to bring some much needed firepower. St Mirren used the same players who triumphed in the midweek against Hibs.St Mirren got off on the front foot and Fitzpatrick hooked a ball into the United penalty area only for Stewart to slice his clearance.

1990 - Dundee Utd 1-0 Hibernian | League (Premier Division)

We posted our third 1-0 Tannadice victory over Hibs this season, with about the only variable factor being that on this occasion Darren Jackson didn't score our winner!

2001 - Dundee Utd 1-1 Hearts | League (SPL)

United received the pre match boost of hearing that relegation rivals St Mirren had lost to Celtic at Parkhead and knew that a win would allow them to stretch their lead at the bottom over the Paisley side. After the midweek defeat at Aberdeen, United were desperate to get back on the rails in what was another vital fixture for the club. However, games against Hearts are always difficult and there was never any doubt that this game would be just that. The Tynecastle side went into the match neck...


1982 - Morton 1-1 Dundee Utd | League (Premier Division)

With Paul Sturrock ruled out after a re-occurrence of a back injury picked up against Celtic a week ago, John Reilly made his third start of the season, and Ian Gibson took his place on the subs bench. Richard Gough and John Holt both made the starting line-up, which had looked doubtful in the days before this rearranged match that had been postponed during the awful weather in January.Ralph Milne put United ahead after 70 minutes with a superb volle...
