The St Mirren Under-20 side headed to Tannadice Park last night where they went down 4-1 to Dundee United in the SPFL Development League.
The home side took the lead on the 15 minute mark as Reece Willison saved Jordan Garden’s shot but the ball broke to Matty Smith who forced it home to open the scoring.
St Mirren continued to battle away and carved out some opportunities but couldn’t capitalise on them and went into the half-time break a goal down.
Allan McManus made a couple of changes to his side for the start of the second half bringing on Nathan Flanagan and Conor O’Keefe to replace Calum Gallagher and Kyle McAllister but they hardly had a chance to settle into the game as United stretched their lead on 51 minutes when Garden headed home a free-kick to put the home side 2-0 up.
Three minutes later Garden found the back of the net again to put United three-up and on the hour mark they sealed the three points as Aaron Murrell headed the ball past Willison for number four.
Saints pulled a goal back on 69 minutes when Andrew McDonald forced the ball home from close range but it was too little too late for Saints to make a comeback as they fell to their second defeat of the season.
St Mirren: Willison, McNaughton, Barclay, Magennis, McKendry, McDonald, Gallacher (Flanagan 46), Walker, Orsi, McLear, McAllister (O’Keefe 46).
