Defender Gavin Gunning gave United the lead with a second-minute header to put them on course for a first SPL home win since August.

But Brian McLean's own goal two minutes after the break ultimately gave St Johnstone a share of the points.

"It was a very open entertaining game for the supporters but it's hard work being Dundee United manager," said Houston.

"I think we're playing some really good stuff and we're attack-minded but, in the same breath, we're not killing teams off.

"Gavin Gunning could have had a hat-trick of headers in the first-half. Rudi Skacel had a chance as well which was cleared off the line while at the same time Radoslaw Cierzniak had some good saves as well.

"I felt with the chances we had we could have been comfortably ahead at half-time.

"St Johnstone, to their credit, came out spirited in the second-half and got the goal quickly.

"Gavin thought it was going out for a goal-kick but Brian was unfortunate to turn it into his own net.

"It was game where we were hoping to start a run of home wins but it wasn't to be and we're disappointed to get just the one point."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
