Edinburgh United 0

Forfar WE 4

West End got off to a flying start when Edinburgh keeper Connor Easton made a good save from a Matt Reynolds shot but the ball fell kindly for striker Graeme Hart who was left with a simple tap-in after only four minutes. The Capital side were denied a penalty in the 26th minute after Jordan Hopkinson looked to have been tripped well inside the box as he raced in on goal but the referee waved aside the appeals. Things then got worse for the hosts when Hart notch his second goal minutes later from the penalty spot after a harsh hand-ball decision which also saw Chris Hendrie red-carded. The game was all but over just before the break when Scott Fullerton added to the West End tally. Ten-men United battled hard in the second half but never looked like scoring and in the last minute of a poor second half Matt Reynolds scored a fourth for the visitors.
