Hearts 1-1 Dundee United: Premiership side earn bonus point after shootout

Hearts 1-1 Dundee United: Premiership side earn bonus point after shootout

Zdenek Zlamal’s shoot-out save from Nicky Clark proved decisive

Hearts took a significant step towards the Scottish League Cup last 16 after beating Dundee United in a shootout after the sides drew 1-1 at Tynecastle.

Craig Levein’s side were flawless from the spot, with former United defender John Souttar scoring the winning kick after Nicky Clark’s opening penalty was saved by Zdenek Zlamal.

Marquee signing Lawrence Shankland had put United in front early on, before Andy Irving volleyed Hearts level. The 19-year-old was then sent off late on for a deliberate handball.

But his Hearts team-mates went on to claim two points to top the group, while United have to settle for one.

Both now face group games with lower league sides Cowdenbeath, Stenhousemuir and East Fife, with only the group winners guaranteed a place in the knockout stages.
