1985 - Dundee Utd 2-1 Neuchatel Xamax | UEFA Cup (3rd Round 1st Leg)

A snow storm descended on Tannadice just after the start of this match and for most of the opening period it was United who looked to have lost their way as the Swiss side's precision possession football blunted United's efforts. To make matters worse Uli Stielike struck a raging 20 yarder to put Neuchatel ahead. Half-time arrived with the very real prospect of an abandonment. However, the lines were swept and fortunately the snow abated somewhat for the second half to get under w


1976 - Partick Th 1-5 Dundee Utd | League (Premier Division)


1974 - Dundee Utd 4-0 Aberdeen | League (Division One)


1948 - Hamilton 2-4 Dundee Utd | League (B Division)


1971 - Dundee Utd 2-0 Motherwell | League (Division One)

Although it wasn't certain at the time, this proved to be manager Jerry Kerr's last match as manager and his side continued their climb up the table with their second successive victory. Fullback Harry Mollison made his first team debut. With only 3,000 on the Tannadice terracings, there was a distinct lack of atmosphere which hardly helped the players. However, United were the brighter of the two sides and deservedly went ahead after 25 minutes when Alan Gordon



1982 - St Mirren 0-2 Dundee Utd | League (Premier Division)

United gave Davie Dodds a well deserved rest for the visit to Love Street, with their leading goalscorer taking a seat on the bench and young John Reilly taking his place in the starting eleven. John Holt came in for Derek Stark, who had been doubtful with a thigh injury. Although St Mirren had been United's bogey team recently, the Tannadice side were on a high after their midweek victory at home to Werder Bremen, and the Buddies had conceded nine goals in their last two matches, and were witho



1999 - Dundee Utd 1-0 St Johnstone | League (SPL)

For the third time within the space of six weeks we met and defeated our Tayside rivals. Whilst the other two clashes at McDiarmid had produced little in the way of goalmouth action, this one did. Most particularly by us during a first half in which we played as well as we have done at any time this season. No one could dispute that we deserved to be ahead of them by more than Jan Telesnikov's magnificent match winner at the break but the inconsistency which has plagued us within matches was


2012 - Dundee Utd 1-2 Motherwell | League (SPL)

Peter Houston made one change to his starting line-up from the side which had won 2-1 away to Ross County at the weekend as Motherwell visited Tannadice on a cold Tuesday, Novemeber evening in Dundee. Gary Mackay-Steven dropped out of the side after he had fractured a bone in his hand in the Highlands which would keep him sidelined for at least four weeks. In his place, Rudi Skacel was given his first start for Dundee United. Motherwell started the brighter almost opening the scoring fro


2004 - Aberdeen 1-0 Dundee Utd | League (SPL)

On a soaking wet day in the Granite City, the result matched the nature of the weather for United this afternoon, with a Steve Tosh goal the only entry on the scoresheet at Pittodrie. Apart from a ten minute spell at the beginning of the second half, Ian McCall’s side looked to struggle to create any meaningful pressure on the Aberdeen defence, which looked to cope relatively comfortably even without their suspended skipper Russell Anderson.The goal came from a neat one-two between Tosh
