First Team Debuts


Despite a great start as Houston sends a Milne cross skidding into his own net, player/boss Alex Miller's gutsy Morton give as good as they get to end United's run of five victories. Robertson soon squeezes home a 25-yarder. McNab, who later forces Gough to clear off the line, is booked.
