Match Report

In conditions starkly contrasting those of of the first leg. United confirmed their passage into the second round but were unable to improve on their first leg result.

The Maltese, strengthened by the appearance of their two overseas stars, Ivanov from Bulgaria and Gutman from Argentina, proved equally committed to maintaining the score to respectable levels and presumably they regarded the 3-0 reversal as success!

The first goal didn't come until the 28th minute when Ralph Milne's strike from an Eamonn Bannon corner was slightly deflected on its way into the net. A minute from half-time Billy Kirkwood scored in like fashion with a 20-yarder. 40 seconds after the restart Ralph Milne extended the aggregate lead to 6-0.
