Match Report


Manager Jackie McNamara had billed this match as a means to establish the players fitness levels and that the scoreline was incidental to that aim. This clash with Athlone, the first of United's pre-season friendlies, achieved the Managers aim with 20 players getting a run out. Callum Morris, Charlie Telfer and Blair Spittal all made their debuts in the starting eleven. Jiri Lenko started on the bench.

There were a number of chances for both sides during this friendly encounter in Ireland but neither could convert any into goals. Brian Graham had the majority of the United chances in the first half, then his replacement in 55 minutes, Nadir Ciftci, had the best of the second half opportunities. In the 55th minute, McNamara made nine substitutes to ensure all involved got a minimum 35 minutes of game time. It was the perfect workout for the team at this early stage of pre-season.
