Dundee United need a Dunfermline-style recovery to rejoin the hunt

If Dundee United are searching for positives in light of their third game in four without a victory, a run that has seen them drop eight points behind league leaders St Mirren, they could do worse than find inspiration from the recent turnaround in fortunes enjoyed by Saturday’s hosts.

The play-off places at either end of the Championship table were uppermost in both these sides’ minds going into this game and a majestic first-half strike by Joe Cardle was enough to ensure it was Dunfermline whose hopes of being in the mix for the head to heads for promotion that were reinforced.

St Mirren 1 - 0 Dunfermline Athletic: Buddies take top spot

This encounter between the two highest scoring sides in the Championship turned out to be more of slow burning battle of attrition – not that St Mirren will be unduly perturbed as a solitary strike from Cammy Smith in the opening 45 minutes was enough to send them back to the top of the table. It was certainly a game where Jack Ross’s side proved that they can dig in and grind out a win which isn’t the worst attribute to have when you are chasing promotion.
