A fine individual goal from Nick van der Velden rescued a point for Dundee United against Queen of the South.
Mark Millar, who failed to score in two years as a Dundee United player, took great pleasure in firing in one against his former club.
However, Van der Velden's composure and ability saw him flick the ball over two defenders in the penalty area before a controlled shot levelled the game.
United should have gone on to win it, but could not find a winner.
New Tannadice team manager Ray McKinnon warned his team that every point in the lower league would have to be earned, but there was a surprising lack of intensity or urgency about Dundee United's play during an opening period where they rarely troubled the visitors goal.
Queen's goalkeeper Lee Robinson hardly had a save to make in that flat first 45 minutes apart from a header from Mark Durnan that was aimed straight at him from a Van der Velden's free kick.
The Dutch midfielder kept drifting into intelligent areas to pick up possession, but the link-up from middle to front was poor despite the pace of Cammy Smith and Tope Obedayi down the flanks.
