Victory for Dundee United as Aberdeen held

AN EARLY strike from Tope Obadeyi extended Dundee United's unbeaten run to 12 games on Saturday as they edged to a 1-0 win at Ayr United in the Scottish Championship.

Tony Andreu played the full match for United, helping to lift the Tangerines onto 34 points for the season which takes them level with leaders Hibernian.

Another played to complete 90 minutes at the weekend was James Maddison, who started in a central midfield role for Aberdeen's Scottish Premiership meeting with St Johnstone.

The Dons were ultimately held to a 0-0 draw in a game of limited chances and next host Motherwell on Tuesday evening.

Declan Rudd, Harry Toffolo and Remi Matthews all missed out for their respective clubs through injury, with the former's Charlton Athletic side playing out a 0-0 draw away to Bradford City in Sky Bet League One.

In the same division, Toffolo's Scunthorpe were beaten 3-2 at Rochdale but still remain clear at the top of the table with Charlton in 11th as they begin life under new manager Karl Robinson.

Hamilton Academical, where Matthews is currently on loan, earned a 1-1 draw at Inverness Caledonian Thistle in the Scottish Premiership.
