Edinburgh United visited Millfield last Wednesday for a Conference A game under the new floodlights. The capital club have their best team for a few seasons and they made a confident start on a tremendous surface. The home side coped well and they broke the deadlock midway through the half when their trialist forward and Subasic combined on the right only for the former to be barged over. Gordon Harris, restored to spot kick duties, scored the opening goal. Ten minutes later Auriemma was fouled 20 yards out and he stepped up to curl in a tremendous free kick against his former club. Two up at the break and playing well surely the points were in the bag? Hutchison came close early in the second half but that was about it as far as home chances were concerned. The visitors were fighting hard to gain a foothold in the match and when the referee ruled that Hamill had inadvertently handled in the box, Edinburgh took full advantage. United pushed for an equaliser and a poor tackle from McGarry ten minutes later presented them with another penalty which they duly converted. McGarry’s evening was to get worse when he rashly jumped into a challenge and immediately saw red, leaving his team mates a man short for the last twenty minutes. There were no more goals but the Hi Hi’s will look upon this a missed opportunity. Manager Joe Hamill may make one or two changes when his side cross the Forth tomorrow to meet league newcomers Kirkcaldy and Dysart.
