Bottom placed Hibs got off to a flying start when Bobby Thomson latched on to a loose ball to net after only 5 minutes. The Easter Road side, encouraged by this, dominated the first half and Ralph Callachan should have added a second before the interval.
Fortunately, the introduction of Ralph Milne after the break changed the course of the game. Ralph volleyed home United's equaliser from a Paul Sturrock knock down. Ralph was also involved directly in our winner, Eamonn Bannon won the ball from Callachan in midfield, swept it out to Paul Sturrock on the left. Paul cut inside, Ralph Milne took two defenders with him on his run down the right, allowing Paul to carry on before chipping the ball over Alan Rough to perfection.
