Match Report

United, who were one of a trio of Clubs chasing leaders Celtic dropped a point at Tynecastle after outplaying Hearts in the first half. Things looked bright when Paul Sturrock scored after Dave Narey nodded down a Gordon Wallace corner in the 25th minute.

However despite their dominance, Jim Brown equalised for Hearts almost right on the interval. The second period saw the home side throwing everything at the Tannadice defence in a bid for victory, but we survived to capture a point which overall they full deserved.
