United will have to take their first round tie with Bellshill to a replay next week after a 3-3 draw today at Newtown Park in the first round of the national tournament.
Bellshill took the lead early on, however two goals from Marty Wright and Fraser Keast put United ahead 2-1 at the break.
An early second half goal from Robert Sloan put United ahead 3-1 from a superb free kick right in to the top corner.
The visitor got back into the game after a defensive blunder when a short pass to the keeper who attempted to clear it only for it to cannonball of the forward across goal where his partner must have thought it was Christmas as he slotted it in the empty net.
The equaliser came and deserving the third when again a defensive howler allowed the men in yellow who kept harassing the BU defence to pick up the ball and left the keeper stranded as the ball flew by him and into the net.
Replay will be next week at Bellshill.
Had it not been the ovation for Nicky Walker at full time you would dread to think what the home support thought of the performance today.
