Fixtures following a European jaunt are always difficult and the trip to Kilbowie turned out to be just that. Iain Ferguson almost gave us a first minute lead, but his lob went over. Bankies hit back and Billy Thomson had to look lively from Christie, Gordon and Grant. It was, however, United, who opened the scoring. Kevin Gallacher won the ball on the right, slung over a cross to the far post which Eamonn Bannon headed powerfully past Gallacher. A mistake by John Clark allowed Gordon into equalise. Although we were on top for the rest of the half no further goals were forthcoming. Five minutes into the second half we did go ahead, Ian Redford clipped the ball into Jim Mclnally's path and his stinging shot to the top right hand corner was blocked by Gallacher. Iain Ferguson was in like lightning to net the rebound.
