United give their all in atrocious conditions

NOT a game that will live long in the memory but one which reflects great credit on two sets of players who gave their all in atrocious conditions. United will be disappointed that their dominance failed to break down stubborn resistance, but, after the split, this type of dog-eat-dog football is what they will have to face for the rest of the season against the other sides in the bottom six.
United gave a home debut to the returning Joe McCready and he started like he meant to showcase his undoubted talent.
Despite constant rain and a sodden pitch, he was soon dancing over the heavy surface and displaying flicks and tricks.
His former partner in crime, Robbie Hume, seemed to relish the restoration of their deadly combination and was buzzing around the visitors' back four.
For the opening quarter, the whole United team played slick football and they certainly had chances to score.
On seven minutes, McCready and Devlin were involved in a flowing move which ended with McCready shooting straight at Williamson.
Five minutes later, Hume wriggled into the box to the bye line, shooting across the box, but failing to find a team mate to finish the move.
