Match Report

As last week against Hibs, the icy conditions were a deterrent to good football with sides dominating when they had the wind at their backs.

Hearts hit the woodwork twice in the first half and had a penalty claim rejected when Hamilton went down in the box following a challenge by United skipper Maurice Malpas. However, they rarely threatened when facing the wind in the second half. Alan McManus headed a Ray McKinnon free-kick past his own keeper midway through the second half to put United seemingly in the driving seat. However, Hearts equalised when United were having their best spell of the game with Hamilton getting with the United defence looking for an offside decision which never came.
