A night that started superbly saw United rue missed chances both at home and away when a wonder strike saw our Polish visitors advance to the next round of the Europa League Qualifiers on away goals. The 3-3 aggregate sent the Poles through to the Europa League third qualifying round on away goals. Over 11,000 fans packed into Tannadice, including 2,000 Poles for this tie.

It was a great start by United when Keith Watson fired the home side ahead after smashing the ball home from 16 yards.

Amazingly, only two minutes later Daly set up David Goodwillie who drove a shot under the Slask keeper Marian Keleman to put United in the driving seat.

However, there was soon to be a blow for United when a superb in-swinging corner found striker Rok Elsner who glanced past Dusan Pernis into the net.

A challenge by Keleman resulted in a penalty to the home side and Jon Daly fired United into a 3-1 lead. However, the killer second goals for the Poles arrived from a Dudek curling shot into the top right-hand corner from 25 yards.

United were out on away goals.
