First Team Debuts


Dodds hits a post in the early stages, but two goals just before the interval give United an uphill task.

Nicholas slots away a hotly disputed penalty after Stark allegedly fouled Provan.

Nicholas flicks a Provan cross on and McGarvey hooks home from close range right on half-time.
