United sent their supporters home happy last night with a resounding win over Dumbarton in the League Cup. As it was, United were four up after half an hour. Peter McKay opened the scoring following good play from George Cruickshank and the latter scored United's second on 20 minutes. Four minutes later, Peter McKay netted his brace before Andy Dunsmore made it 4-0 with just half an hour gone.The game calmed down after that and twelve minutes after the restart Hugh Goldie scored for the Sons to reduce the deficit, however the four goal lead was restored by Jimmy Colgan mid-way through the second half to record a final score of 5-1.
