Dundee United completed the hard work at home to set themselves up for a slightly more comfortable trip to the unknown in the second leg. United take a hold of this game with a double in three minutes. The first after 34 minutes was a cracker. Youngster Dave Narey got on the end of a McDonald cross and wheeled round to fire home.

Three minutes later and it was Jackie Copland who met a Fleming corner and the keeper allowed the ball to squirm out of his hands into the net.

Pat Gardner got the third goal in the second half after the introduction of Sturrock and Houston as United eased through this match.
