Part 36 - Dundee United (N)

Let's Do the Semi Again 

With three crucial league games left, and two of them being away from home, the crowd for the semi final replay was down 3,000 from the previous week.
Those that travelled, however, were treated to the correct result, and got to see about 107% more of the game than the BBC's gas powered handycam highlights would show the rest of us.

It wasn't 'til the second half that the boys in blue stamped their authority on the game. Paul Wright had a 'goal' chopped off for offside following a glorious cross from the unstoppable, irrepressible Legend Dylan Kerr. John Henry's shot was parried by the United 'keeper straight into the path of the on-rushing Wright. But, thanks to the aforementioned handycam highlights, no-one watching at home could tell if he really was offside or not.

With time ebbing away and the prospect of extra time. We won a corner. Bagan took it and Holt had a tremendous flick on for John Henry.

He blasted the ball straight into the six yard box, where Jim McIntyre ensured he'd have quite the birthday on the 24th May, as his shot hit the back of the net, sending the fans behind the goal into raptures, and sent Bobby Williamson's rag-tag bunch to the Scottish Cup final.
