First Team Debuts

Milestones

A great performance by United to earn a draw at Filbert Street. They had to survive some early scares as Worthington twice headed past from close range. Worthington wasn't to be denied though and when Doug Smith tripped Stringfellow, it was he who stepped up to score the penalty.

United got the equaliser in the 61st minute when Frank Kopel hit a shot that deflected of Munro and into the net.
