1' - We're off at the Global Energy Stadium
1' - Utd are defending the empty end of the stadium, which isn't open tonight, and attacking the almost empty end, which is open. Small crowd.
3' - Early Utd attack down the left is easily dealt with by the home defence.
4' - At the other end Wardrup fouls Gardyne out wide. Kelly plays the ball short to Garydne and he shoots wide. He should have been picked up there.

8' - Utd are stroking the ball around well in these opening minutes.
10' - So far it's the final ball in the attacking third that's letting both teams down. It was ever thus at this time of a campaign.
11' - Rabitsch is warned for a hefty tackle on Gardyne. That's the second time already the Dundonian's taken a dunt.
12' - Gardyne's down again after a Rabitsch tackle. He'll beginning to think Utd don't like him.
14' - It's getting a bit narky. Even the two benches are exchanging words.
15' - Close. McMullan free kick is headed over by Frans. That was a chance.
17' - Clark fouls Draper. Mullin chips the ball in for Kelly who heads well wide with the goal at his mercy. That should have been the opener.

32' - Draper booked for a foul on Smith. That was a crunching tackle.
33' - Booth with a strong run gets to the home area. A sliding tackle from Watson stops him getting his shot away. Good work by Utd fullbacks past and present.
36' - Angry words after Fontaine catches Rakovan in the face with a flying arm. Both need treatment and referee Willie Collum accepts it was accidental. Csaba doesn't think so and lets the assistant ref know.
38' - Fontaine has clearly hurt his arm on the goalie's head and has to be replaced by Morris.

51' - Strong McManus run is halted by Murdoch and Wardrop. Good defending.

77' - They've had one and normal service for this fine second half is resumed as Gardyne shoots over from the edge of the area.
78' - Another near thing. McManus gets into the box and Rakovan does well to dive at his feet and block.
80' - Penalty! Gardyne fouls Stanton. Clark takes it, Fox saves brilliantly to his right and then does even better to block the rebound.
82' - Dow replaces McKay for County.
84' - Morris fouls McMullan. This could be another Utd chance. The we attacker sends the free kick in. It's too high.
85' - OH NO! Brilliant work on the right by Dow and when he sends over the cross Lindsay heads home for the opener.
