Two goals inside a minute midway through the opening half left honours even at Tannadice between Dundee United and Kilmarnock. Conor Sammon drove the visitors ahead after receiving a through pass from Mehdi Taouil before Johnny Russell snatched an immediate equaliser following good work from Prince Buaben.

In fact it was Russell and central defender Garry Kenneth having early headers for the home side which failed to find the target. Frazer Wright then thumped in a header at the opposite end on the quarter-hour but his effort was disallowed after Sammon was penalised.

Seven minutes later Sammon opened the scoring with his fifth goal in four games after drilling underneath goalkeeper Dusan Pernis, only for the lead to be quickly cancelled out when Russell collected David Goodwillie's pass to claim his first goal for the club at Tannadice.

Home keeper Dusan Pernis was soon proving his worth with fine saves from Sammon and particularly Alexei Eremenko after helping his free-kick against the woodwork. Goodwillie then tried his luck on a couple of occasions in reply, while his side were also forced to replace the injured Scott Robertson with Stuart Armstrong.

Following the break Eremenko could only locate the side-netting for the visitors before goalscorer Russell screwed wide and Goodwillie had an attempt from distance turned over by Killie keeper Cameron Bell.

But the contest was still very much in the balance as Eremenko and Manuel Pascali were both off-target for the away side, while Arabs substitute Daly also twice threatened late on - heading straight at Bell from Goodwillie's cross before then collecting Morgaro Gomis' pass and sending his finish wide across goal.
