Match Report


A last minute header by Steven Thompson pulled three points out of the fire and ended the run of four straight league defeats. Charlie Miller picked out Jim
McIntyre who scored with an angled drive to give United a deserved lead early in the second half after a
dull opening period. When Simmons headed Hearts level with twenty minutes
left, the United defence came under increasing pressure, mainly of an aerial nature, as the home side went all out for a winner. However when it did come it was at the other end,Steven
Thompson rising to plant a
header from Jamie McCunnie's cross just inside the bottom corner.
