Arabs win Oban Tournament

Dundee United won the Oban Tournament on goal-difference after remaining unbeaten in their five games at the weekend.

Andis Shala scored the only goal from a Ryan Dow corner to earn a 1-0 victory over Alloa Athletic in their opening game before Fran Sandaza struck twice in a 2-0 triumph over St Johnstone.

The Arabs were then held to a 0-0 draw by Hearts in their third game, while a couple of penalties from Jon Daly and Damian Casalinouvo were enough to see off hosts Oban Saints 2-1.

Their final match remained scoreless with Hamilton Academical, which was enough to clinch them the tournament on goal-difference.

"It's always nice to win, especially for all the fans who made the long journey up here, but the main purpose was to give everyone game time and in that sense it was once again a really worthwhile exercise," coach Gary Kirk told the Arabs' official website.

"It was good to see both Fran Sandaza and Scott Robertson, in particular, on the park for so long and coming through unscathed."
