Match Report


For only the second time since the start of the Premier Division, United emerged from the four games against Aberdeen without defeat.

If the Tangerines performance was below par in the first half, then it was much improved in the second during which a Windass penalty, awarded after Mark Perry was adjudged to have fouled Scott Booth, was cancelled out.

United's equaliser may have been scrappy given that the ball was fired against Kjell Oloffson before the ball rolled over the line, but it was no more than justice with the having missed a sitter ten minutes earlier. The point extended United's unbeaten run to 16 matches.
