Match Report

Our third successive victory, all by a winning 2-0 margin, took us through to tonight's quarter-final tie with St Mirren. Like Saturday's derby, United weren't quite at their best, but rarely looked like losing a goal. Clydebank did have an early chance when Vinny Moore, once a trialist at Tannadice, went close with a header. An Ian Redford header, straight at 'keeper Gallacher was United's answer. Not until the 22nd minute was the deadlock broken. Stuart Beedie picked up a loose ball, spurted to the bye-line and his cut-back was volleyed in by Richard Gough for his second Skol Cup goal of the season. There was a lucky escape for United before the interval when Gerry Ronald drove in what looked like the equaliser, only to find it chalked off for offside.

Playing more fluently in the second half, United created more by the way of chances with Paul Sturrock, Richard Gough and Ian Redford all going close, before the latter prodded in his first goal for the club after Richard Gough knocked down a swerving Eamonn Bannon cross to the former Rangers man.
