  • 4. First Team Debut

    Hearts 3 - 1 Dundee United
    League (SPL)

    Visits toTynecastle Park have not been that enjoyable in recent seasons with some notable exceptions, not least, our victory there last season. In this game, right from the start, it was clear that this would not be one of the exceptions with Hearts threatening to swamp United from the first few minutes. United started without the man who has rapidly become a hero in the Arab defence, the suspende

    League (SPL)

    With both United and Aberdeen showing much improved form recently, this rearranged match was eagerly anticipated by both sets of supporters.

    Hearts 2 - 1 Dundee United
    League (SPL)

    United were the better side in the opening twenty minutes and Latapy was getting the better of a nervous Hearts side, but chances were few and far between for both sides in the early stages. Hearts began to take charge in the latter stages of the half with Valois, De Vries and Severin all trying their luck at goal before United took the lead through a beautifully executed Griffin free-kick.

  • 9. Last Appearance

    Kilmarnock 0 - 2 Dundee United
    League (SPL)

    United made the long trip to Kilmarnock today and scored a goal in each half to grab all three points and move up three places in the league to seventh. There were two changes from the eleven who started on Tuesday evening against Partick Thistle, with Jim Paterson and Barry Robson fielded in place of Danny Griffin and Charlie Miller, both of whom were on the bench.

    The first half was short
