Match Report


We slumped to our heaviest defeat of the season, as Saints chalked up their best Premier result of the season.

After United missed an early chance, Saints took the lead from the penalty spot in 20 minutes, Ian Scanlon converting the award after Maurice Malpas was adjudged to have tripped Frank McDougall. United fell further behind three minutes from the break when Frank McAvennie's glancing header beat Hamish McAlpine.

The team was reshuffled at the interval with Dave Narey in a midfield role. However, it was Saints who went further ahead when Frank McDougall laid on Frank McAvennie's second goal of the match. Then in the 70th minute Frank McAvennie completed his hat-trick poking home from close range.
