The game was of academic interest as neither side had a chance to qualify from section 4. Despite just one goal being scored the ninety minutes were packed with incident to keep the meagre sprinkling of fans happy. The home side were always the more adventurous and took a
fine display by Hamish McAlpine to keep United in with a chance. However, in the dying minutes of the game Hamish could only turn a net bound lan Fleming header onto the crossbar and lan Fallis netted the winner from close range.
