First Team Debuts

Billy Kirkwood made his 300th competitive appearance for the Club.

United opened the scoring after 28 minutes when Smith missed an Eamonn Bannon corner and Paul Hegarty's shot was blocked on the line but Paul Sturrock was on hand to net the rebound. Just before the end of a United dominated first period Jim Bone received his marching orders for a foul on Paul Hegarty, having already been booked.

Ten-man Hearts were spurred on by their sizeable support in the second half when Dave Narey denied John Robertson with his hands and the youngster converted the inevitable penalty award. With an unwanted Tynecastle replay on the cards Paul Hegarty rose to a Dave Narey free kick and headed down for Davie Dodds to steer the ball home.
