First Team Debuts

Milestones
Johnny Graham scored his first goal for the Club.

The scoreline was almost unbelievable in the sense that it was hard to believe United only scored twice. In the second half especially, when United had wind and sun advantage, the Dark Blue's defence was all at sea, but the home side failed to capitalise on their monopoly of the play.
Dundee had gone ahead after 23 minutes when Alex Stuart crashed in a spectacular 25 yarder. Within two minutes, United had equalised, however, Alec Hamilton handled in the box. Bert Slater saved Jimmy Briggs spot kick but Jackie Graham followed up to score. The winner came in the 36th minute from a Denis Gillespie comer. Johnny Graham met it and Frannie Munro deftly diverted the ball past Slater. Strangely, in view of the second half, the first half was fairly evenly balanced. This win maintained United's 100% record in their section after four ties.

None.
