First Team Debuts

Milestones
Richard Gough played his 100th major competitive game for the Club.

The Tannadice goal machine moved through to the West as did the Tannadice crowd, thanks to the generous offer of free admission.

For the second week running United won 4-0 and relegated the opposition. Davie Dodds (2), Dave Narey and Ralph Milne sunk Benny Rooney's side and just two games remained to be won to capture glory.
