    A Dundee native, Brad first played at Tannadice at the age of 6 whilst playing in the J-League before spending two years with Saints Boys Club. At the age of 9 he joined the United Youth Academy, whilst attending regular sessions with Ian Cathro’s Soccer Clinic.

  • Frederic Frans opened the scoring in the sixth minute, crashing a header into the United net as he rose unchallenged to meet Penrice’s driven corner from the right. Simon Murray was, as usual, making a nuisance of himself and set Knoyle off down the right; his deep cross was met at the back post by Billy Mckay, but the striker could only find the side netting from the angle. Murray was again at the heart of United’s next attack, a cute turn on the right touchline gave him room to drive past Penrice and fire a cross come shot through the six yard area but it found neither the net nor a team mate. In an even half, Partick seemed content to hit United on the counter attack and United were fortunate that Kris Doolan did not spot the run of Edwards, otherwise the Thistle attacker would have been clean through on goal. United’s best chance of the half came on twenty one minutes: Dixon robbed Amoo off the ball on the half way line and raced forward before sliding the ball to Mckay 25 yards out. Mckay took a single touch and fired a wicked shot that had Thistle keeper Scully stretching to push away from goal. Mckay then had another effort from distance, but this time the shot screwed well wide. John Rankin was next to try his luck from distance, fully forty yards from goal, he fired a free kick which the Thistle defence did well to deflect for a corner. Souttar was unfortunate not to make contact with Fraser’s cross and the chance came to nothing. In the forty first minute United were undone again, as has been so often this season, by their own poor defending. A long ball was flicked on by Amoo, looping the ball over Souttar, Dillon stretched to clear, but the ball rebounded off his own chest into the path of Kris Doolan, who waltzed past Kawashima and rolled the ball into the empty net.

  • As expected Ray McKinnnon rang the changes, with no fewer than eight changes from the starting eleven which won the three points in a hard fought game on Tuesday with the bulk of the bench from the midweek clash starting. Notably Brad Smith joined the team and the United fans will have welcomed the sight of Stuart Murdoch on the bench after his lengthy absence. Nate Wedderburn, suspended for the Pars following his dismissal at Tannadice, and former United front man El Alagui dropped to the bench, while Michael Paton and Rhys McCabe join their starting line up.
