Matches Played on January 22nd


1938 - Dundee Utd 3-1 Hearts | Scottish Cup (1st Round)

When the draw was made it appeared a real mismatch. That's because the capital club, then managed by the former Arsenal and England goalkeeper, Frank Moss, were flying high, engaged in a neck-andneck contest with Celtic for the Scottish League championship. By contrast, Dundee United remained in existence only because city businessman George Greig had paid off the club's debts in the summer of 1936, sacked the board of directors and the manager, then proceeded to run the club entirely on his own...


1983 - Dundee Utd 3-2 St Mirren | League (Premier Division)

Prior to this Scottish Cup "rehearsal" against St Mirren, United had only picked up one point in their last three matches, dropping five points behind league leaders Celtic. Already without Eamonn Bannon who had picked up a leg strain, United also ruled out international striker Paul Sturrock due to an overnight virus. His place was taken by youngster John Clark, a prolific scorer in the reserves who was making his starting eleven debut. Derek Stark, Billy Kirkwood, Ralph Milne and Maurice Malpa...


2005 - Dunfermline 1-1 Dundee Utd | League (SPL)

The game started brightly for United with Ian McCall’s team taking the game straight to Dunfermline. Within the first minute, a Mark Wilson cross had been headed goalwards by McIntyre bringing a decent save out of Stillie.The home side soon decided that their open hospitality towards United should stop and they too began to carve out a few openings. A Scott Thomson free kick was bravely charged down buy Derek McInnes and Andy Tod sent a header wide as the Pars picked up their play....


2011 - Kilmarnock 1-1 Dundee Utd | League (SPL)

A last-minute Garry Kenneth thunderbolt earned nine-man United a deserved point against ten-man Kilmamock. A first-half goal from in-form striker Connor Sammon appeared to have given Kilmarnock victory before substitute Kenneth popped up with a 35-yard right foot strike. In an actionpacked 90 minutes, Alexei Eremenko saw red for Kilmamock before Scott Robertson and captain Jon Daly were dismissed for United during an eventful second half. Peter Houston again faced selection problems and with Gar...


1994 - Celtic 0-0 Dundee Utd | League (Premier Division)

As United tried to make it three consecutive victories, Paddy Connolly returned at the expense of Christian Dailly who joined Jerren Nixon on the substitutes bench. When United triumphed at Ibrox in December, they did so on the back of a goal in 22 seconds. At Parkhead they would have bettered that time had Craig Brewster not been inches away from getting his head to a Scott Crabbe cross! Indeed, United's start was far and away the more positive, though Celtic did gradually make their ma...
