Milestones
Ray Stewart played his 50th major competitive game for the Club.
Billy Kirkwood scored for the 25th time for the Club.

Another memorable game for the fans in that the derby win over their city rivals was seldom in doubt after Paul Sturrock latched on to a Willie Pettigrew assist in 22 minutes to send United ahead. Substitute Billy Kirkwood added another with Derek Stark completing the win in the second half.

None.
