United travelled to Pittodrie with Andy Gray back in their side after injury and with a target of a record-breaking seventh consecutive league win in sight. However, things did not go to plan for Jim McLean's men with the Dons in the driving seat from practically the first whistle. Only a superb Hamish McAlpine save from a Dave Robb penalty foiled the home side after 26 minutes but just two minutes from the interval Billy Williamson stepped in to grab an Aberdeen lead with an acute angled shot. United continued to be on the receiving end after the break and it was no surprise when Jim Hermiston added to the Dons' lead from a second penalty award on the hour mark.
