Fellow promotion contenders Hamilton were faced by a United side strengthened by new signings Tommy Campbell from Albion Rovers and Gibby Ormond from Falkirk for the vital clash. And Ormond took little time to settle by giving United a 5th minute lead. Not to be outdone Campbell added another in the 25th minute and completed a great debut hat-trick in the second half with Jim Irvine netting United's other goal. Hamilton, with someone by the name of JIM McLEAN in the No. 7 shirt, scrambled a late consolation goal from McPike.
