Dundee United 1 - 0 Linfield: United yongsters leave it late

Rarely has a winning goal seemed so like an act of mercy. Logan Chalmers struck in the fourth minute of added time to put this uninspiring Irn-Bru
Cup tie out of its misery. It was a form of organised torment for most of the 1,967 spectators that assembled at a ghostly Tannadice yesterday, but United’s second string did enough to deserve this last-gasp
victory and keep their hopes of retaining the trophy they won last spring alive.
