The opening half hour produced a proliferation of corners in United's favour, but a goal-line clearance from a Richard Gough header was the nearest to a goal. United began the second half in a more determined mood, Paul Hegarty hitting the woodwork and then heading narrowly past. A state of stalemate appeared to be setting in when John Holt latched on to a Davie Dodds square ball, ran fully 30 yards before neatly beating Money in goal. United stepped up the pressure and went further ahead when John Reilly nodded home from close in. A third goal looked on the cards when United were awarded a penalty, but Eamonn Bannon's spot kick was saved by Money.
