Match Report


Raith Rovers deserved their first win. True, in the first period, they were a poor lot, but United could not be placed in that category in the second period. Raith had to fight every inch of the way towin. Simpson and Smith were stalwart defenders for the visitors.
There were two stars of the match, Gould, Raith Rovers, and Junior, Dundee United. When Gould was moved to inside-right on the resumption, it made all the difference to Raith Rovers attack.
McNaught, who netted both of the goals, was not much more than a passenger in the early stages, but he made up for this later on. Abbie and Rougvie did grand work.
