Match Report


After the visitors gifted us a first, gratefully accepted by Kjell Olofsson, there was only going be one winner after Robbie Winters fired in a second with less than quarter of an hour gone.

The game came to life again in the last twenty minutes with goals by Gary McSwegan and Andy McLaren to give United their biggest win since New Years Day, but more importantly, that vital first league win of the season.
