Campbell Puts United In The Soup!
It was back to league business in our next game, Dundee United were our visitors in a fixture which was brought forward. It was a game in which defences were on top. John Gardiner was our hero early on with two great saves, but we never really got on top until George Campbell came on for the injured Alex Grant, and with clever ball control, and direct crossing he gave the United defence some anxious moments. It was fitting that he should score the only goal of the game with a terrific shot into the top corner of the net.
