Dundee United Sports Club overcame Dundee West 3-1 in the Brought Ferry Café Royale League fixture held at Downfield Park, with two second half strikes proving the difference between the sides.
Dundee West stated brightly with some good interlinking play down the left allowing Brian Harris to deliver a ball across goal which was dealt with effectively by the United defence.
Harris was in the thick of the action moments later, after showing good perseverance to chase down a through ball the striker forced Leighton Quinn in the United goal to make a clearance which rebounded off the attacker and crept wide of the post.
In spite of the early pressure United managed to gain a foothold in the match and created their first chance with a flick on from a throw allowing the onrushing Conner McHugh to fire a shot wide of the post.
Dundee United SC were to regret the missed opportunity as Jaden Ferguson put the home side ahead with a powerful drive from just inside the box, following good movement down the right. Fergusons direct style was causing the United defence all sorts of problems, with a last ditch clearance from Aidan Simpson preventing West from doubling their advantage.
As West pushed for their second of the afternoon they were caught on the counter by United, a good run by Kieran Barron released Reece Muir and the overlapping fullback delivered a cross which rose just beyond the strikers in the box.
Buoyed by the opportunity United continued to press their opponents and Barrons good work was rewarded with the equalizer after being played in on goal by Rory Jagusinski.
