FIVE CRU­CIAL CLASHES

Paisley Daily Express - - The Neil Deal -

ST MIR­REN 3 DUNDEE UTD 0 St Mir­ren brought Dundee United’s un­beaten start to an em­phatic end at the end of Au­gust as they sim­ply steam­rollered past the Arabs.

Lewis Mor­gan’s dou­ble and a rasp­ing drive from Ian McShane set the wheels in mo­tion for the play­ers and the fans to re­ally be­lieve they had what it took to win the Cham­pi­onship. The con­fi­dence was breed­ing from that mo­ment on­wards, al­though few ex­pected the re­mark­able fash­ion in which Saints would even­tu­ally leave United in their wake. IN­VER­NESS CT 0 ST MIR­REN 2 Saints bat­tled not just In­ver­ness but also the sleet, the hail, the snow and the rain in dis­as­ter­ous con­di­tions in the High­lands in Novem­ber. It felt like the day that the play­ers re­ally started to gel, and has been pin­pointed by many as the turn­ing point in the club’s sea­son. In a fi­esty en­counter, per­haps it was the day that Saints were re­ally all in it to­gether, with ex­pe­ri­enced man Craig Sam­son stick­ing up for his men.
