Daly snatches point for United

Published Add your comment

Jon Daly earned Dundee United a 3-3 draw in their Clydesdale Bank Premier League match with Kilmarnock as the Taysiders mounted a second-half fightback.

United looked out of things after Cillian Sheridan fired Killie into a 2-0 first-half lead and Paul Heffernan (53) had made it 3-1 after Gary Mackay-Steven (48) reduced the deficit.

But captain Daly struck in the 56th minute before Sheridan crucially had what would have been his hat-trick goal ruled out for offside in the 77th minute. And Daly made the most of that reprieve when he stooped to head home from Barry Douglas' perfect cross to send the home fans away happy and with their money's worth from a thrilling encounter.
