Match Report


Defeat was something the home side couldn't contemplate given their precarious league position and there is no doubt that the Bairns made the more brisk beginning. However, United went on to dominate the remainder of the half and eventually went ahead two minutes before the interval. Freddy van der Hoorn back in the side for the first time in two and a half months played a ball up the left and Paddy Connolly cut inside before slotting the ball into the far corner.

That lead was no more than we deserved and 90 seconds into the second half we moved further in front. Duncan Ferguson was the architect when he dragged the bailout left before sending over a high looping cross which Grant Johnson volleyed into the roof of the net. Instead of capitalising on a two goal foundation, we tended to sit back and after Drinkell had twice gone close George Shaw did pull a goal back after Alan Main'had saved May's shot.
