Brian McLean, right, scored the opener as United won the Dundee derby

The winger drilled a shot under Rab Douglas in the 35th minute of an absorbing first half at Dens Park after Dundee midfielder Jim McAlister had cancelled out Brian McLean's headed opener.

Dundee had brought in John Brown as interim manager the previous weekend in a bid to save their season but United maintained the upper hand in the city clashes. However, this was closer than the previous three encounters, including a pre-season friendly, which all ended 3-0 to the Tannadice men.
