United gained revenge against the Belgian Club who eliminated them from the UEFA Cup five years ago. Some 27 minutes had passed when United took the lead. Eamonn Bannon out on the left, slung over a cross which Ralph Milne powerfully headed in from six yards. The killer goal came a minute from the break when John Holt's pass sprung the Belgian's offside tactics and Ralph Milne ran on to beat Freud-homme, with a neat chip. Two goal hero Ralph Milne was the provider of the cross for the third goal, when skipper Paul Hegarty headed in the third goal six minutes after the restart. A further goal appeared and it duly arrived after almost inevitable a superb link-up between Billy Kirkwood, Ralph Milne and Richard Gough, whose cross was prodded home by Davie Dodds for the fourth goal.
