THE clinical finishing of Renfrew forwards Willie Sawyers and Chris Zok ensured United’s first away day since the start of February was a miserable affair.
After a goal-less first half at Western Park, Cumbernauld came unstuck and conceded four goals without reply during the second 45 minutes.
Kilsyth Rangers meanwhile maintained their unbeaten away record against East Kilbride Thistle at Showpark, but only just.
The teams traded goals throughout a thrilling game, with McLaren drawing the away side level at 3-3 in the 81st minute.
