 Livingston 2 Dundee United 2

An experimental Dundee United side twice led but were eventually held at Livingston in their latest pre-season run-out.

Manager Peter Houston included a couple of teenage trialists from the kick-off in Nigel Hasselbank and Johnbull Omoregie following their substitute appearances against Raith Rovers last night.

There was an early blow for the visitors when Francisco Sandaza landed heavily and was replaced by Ryan Dow inside the opening ten minutes.

Damian Casilinouvo then had penalty claims brushed aside after appearing to be held back inside the area before he opened the scoring just before the interval.

Jennison Myrie-Williams delivered a free-kick that ex-Arab Tony Bullock spilled and Casilinouvo turned the ball in.

But their opponents were level on the hour-mark when substitute goalkeeper Filip Mentel brought down Mark McNulty and he converted from the spot.

However, a brilliant solo effort from Myrie-Williams regained the visitors lead when he swept past a couple of opponents and chipped over the keeper with eleven minutes remaining.

Darren Dods then had a header tipped over by replacement home keeper Craig McDowell before Chris Malone drove a second Livi equaliser six minutes from time.
