Match details

3 mins - An early Penrith corner came to nothing as Davidson curled it over the bar.

9 mins - Potts and Amoo combined on the right flank to win a corner but Jamieson was well placed to gather as the cross came in.

11 mins - Miller drilled a shot wide after he battled for space on the edge of the area.

15 mins - Miller released Emerton with a superb pass but a timely tackle from Holliday stopped the wide man in his tracks.

16 mins - Gillies did well to make space for a delivery but his low cut-back raced across the face of goal in front of the attackers.

20 mins - Excellent work from Emerton on the left flank left Holliday at sixes and sevens as the cross whipped in. Amoo stretched to get a touch but he could only lift it over the bar.

26 mins - Gillies spun his marker inside his own half and fed Amoo on the overlap. The winger beat one challenge only to see the ball stabbed away for a corner. Livesey challenged for the Gillies inswinger but he couldn't quite make a connection.

29 mins - Rigg let fly from 25-yards as the ball landed at his feet but he failed to make a connection and the save was easy for Gillespie.

36 mins - Amoo dropped a shoulder and sprinted into the box but a superb tackle from Davidson stopped him in his tracks as he readied himself to shoot.

37 mins - The chance of the half fell to Emerton as he found himself one-on-one with Jamieson. The big keeper timed his dive to perfection as he nicked the ball off the toes of the United trialist.

40 mins - United won a corner as a Weldon cross was deflected behind but Parker was up first to clear it.

Half time: Penrith 0 - 0 United

55 mins - A quiet start to the second half was punctuated by a long ball over the top which invited Miller to lob. Jamieson ran off his line to cover and the striker could only pop his effort over the bar.

62 mins - Symington raced into space on the right and it needed a parry from the keeper as a fierce shot angled towards the bottom corner.

68 mins - United had numbers in the box and Lynch was unlucky not to score as Jamieson made a block at the near post. Symington scuffed his shot but Alex Salmon was on hand to guide it into the bottom corner.

75 mins - Gillespie made a two-handed diving save as Penrith threw men forward.

77 mins - Salmon and Lynch exchanged quick passes but the defence stood strong to stop the shot.

78 mins - Panic in the United box as a high ball caused problems until Dickson eventually hooked it clear.

81 mins - Symington swung a free kick towards the penalty spot and Jamieson did well to keep his eye on the Dempsey header which followed.

83 mins - Dempsey found himself bearing down on goal but his placed curler was too close to the keeper.

87 mins - Symington let fly into the side netting from distance and Dempsey dinked another effort wide as the pace of the game slowed.

90 mins - Chisholm nodded a deep Symington corner wide moments before the final whistle blew.
