Again it was a close call. Although this time nothing other than a United victory looked on the cards as the game entered its closing stages. Already one up thankks to Kjell Olofsson's early strikee, Gary McSwegan made it two from an Olofsson asisst. But in the last five minutes Caley come back from the dead. Thomson heading home and McCulloch sending a 25 yard rasper into the top left hand corner to take the tie into extra-time. Lars Zetterlund settled the issue from Gary McSwegan's cross from 15 yards in the 18th minute of extra-time to spare any further blushes.
