The teams faced off again in the Replay Match played the following week on Saturday 25th September 2021 at Townhead Park and despite a pre-match scare when Goalkeeper Balint Demus reported an injury in the warm-up, United steamrollered their opponents in a devastating first half which saw them 4-0 up at Half Time through goals from Graeme Rodger, Jonathan Smith, Tyler Mykyta and Scott Lisle.
