First Team Debuts

Milestones

The vital first goal fell to United and was a strike of the highest quality. Eamonn Bannon took a return pass from Paul Sturrock and crashed the ball first time past a helpless Bonner. Paul Sturrock was also the purveyor of United's second goal with a defence splitting pass to Billy Kirkwood who beat Bonner with the assistance of Tom McAdam's leg.

United extended their lead to three following a defensive mix-up. Roy Aitken's pass back beat Bonner, the Celtic skipper himself stopped the ball entering the net but struck the post and Davie Doddswas on hand to net the rebound. Celtic's consolation counter was fittingly scored by Roy Aitken when he poked home a well-flighted Burns free-kick.
