Ivan Sproule's 53rd-minute strike proved enough to earn the points for the hosts and take them to fourth, while United had to play the last half-hour with 10 men after Barry Douglas was sent off for a dangerous tackle.

United are now seven points adrift of third place with only three games remaining, and McNamara said: "I think that is it over for Europe. Realistically, it would be very difficult for us.

"I thought it was a game we had to win and I'm very disappointed with the way it panned out, especially with the sending-off.

"The first goal is always crucial when you come here, the way they play and defend. It's difficult."

Douglas saw red despite winning the ball in a challenge on Sproule, and McNamara added: "I've just seen Barry's challenge on the monitor there and he has won the ball. I didn't even think it was a yellow, never mind a red."

still can't see the Phil Jones thing that some people go on about. Whenever I watch him play it's a repeat of headless chicken meets a gurning Bambi on ice for 90 minutes.

F365's Top Ten Defenders Of The Season

P

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
