1982 - Hibernian 0-3 Dundee Utd | Scottish Cup (4th Round Replay (2nd))

The match was delayed for five minutes to allow the healthy crowd into Easter Road to witness the third meeting between the sides to see who could progress to the next round after this 2nd Replay. United remained unchanged from the side that drew with Rangers two days before.Hibs started the match in determined fashion and were eager and sharp in the tackle. Hibs first real foray towards the United goal was cut short by John Holt who tripped Ally MacLeod 20 yards out. The winger got up h...


1997 - Kilmarnock 2-3 Dundee Utd | League (Premier Division)

It isn't often that both managers agree that the wrong side won, but both Tommy Mclean and Bobby Williamson were in agreement. The home side struggling to avoid the drop had a better start when Maurice Malpas sent a glancing header past his own keeper as he stretched to make contact with Burke's cross. Whilst United might have equalised right away, Winters knocking a Kjell Olafsson cross narrowly wide of the near post, the action mainly centred around Sieb Dykstra. The Dutchman kept us i...


1992 - Dundee Utd 2-2 Motherwell | League (Premier Division)

It's no secret David Syme isn't United's favourite ref, and once again the Tannadice side suffered from controversial decisions made by the Rutherglen official. The first came in the 79th minute with United leading 2-1. John O'Neil went past Thomson, who appeared to grab the winger's ankle. The only man in the ground who didn't think it was a penalty was the one wearing black. Another goal for United at that point would surely have clinched the match for them. But Mr Syme wasn't finished. Iain F...


1986 - Dundee Utd 1-1 Rangers | League (Premier Division)

This will be regarded as a point dropped, but we could have no compIaints at the outcome. A late penalty award should have seen us take both points, which on the balance of play in our four meetings, we most probably deserved. The early signs were good, however, Davie Dodds gave us an early lead as the result of a somewhat fortuitous build-up. The United striker began the move, cutting in from the right, Davie chipped the ball to Paul Sturrock whose head flick found Kevin Gallacher. Unfortunatel...


2011 - St Johnstone 0-0 Dundee Utd | League (SPL)

A battling display saw United play out a goalless draw to earn a point against St Johnstone. In a game of few chances, neither side looked like scoring and both will have been content with the result. The difficult playing surface meant there was little in the way of flowing football or goalmouth incident for the travelling Arabs to cheer, but they will have gone home pleased with the effort shown by Peter Houston's men. The United manager made a couple of changes to the side that started the pr...
