Match Report


United's run of success came to a halt at Coatbridge, as Albion Rovers rose to the occasion and showed grit and playing power to topple the league leaders. The Rovers scored twice but could have added to their tally, as in the first half they were vastly superior. But for the crossbar, they could have had several in the first half.

Upton netted the opener before doing so again in the second half, United coming into the game latterly but failing to ever test Crosskey. Johnny Hart was the only forward of merit, while Harry McGregor, Bill Taylor and Patsy Deuchar all did their level best to keep the score down.
