First Team Debuts

Milestones

Backed by a howling gale. a Stark strike from 20 yards is all United have to show for their first half efforts against Bobby Watson's men. From Gahagans comer Motherwell equalise with a header, but Hegarty saves any blushes. His header bounces in after Sturrock swings and misses.



None.
