Dunfermline 1 Dundee United 2

The 37th minute brought the opening goal. A cross from the left created an exchange between Moult and Fotheringham that teed up Grimshaw for a shot driven on target from the edge of the box. It was initially saved by Mehmet but Kai FOTHERINGHAM reacted first to head the loose ball into the Dunfermline net. 0-1

United were caught on the counter in 53 minutes. A corner on the left was clipped away by Chalmers and a timely header from Wighton sent Owen MOFFAT on a run from his own half and when Declan Gallagher, the sole United defender in from of him slipped, he cooly finished into the bottom right of the opposition net. 1-1

There was a halt in proceedings as McCann and his manager were both shown yellow cards but from the resultant free kick United scored their second. Two United subs combined to find the 85th minute winner. Mathew Cudjoe crossed and it was MOCHRIE who hit the left footed shot past Sharp. 1-2
