Michael Higdon and Chris Humphrey gave the visitors a 2-0 lead after just 10 minutes before Jon Daly pulled one back for the home side before half-time.

McCall's side survived a barrage of second half pressure to clinch all three points and gain revenge for their defeat to United earlier in the month.

"I think they'll probably feel a bit hard done to and that they deserved a point, similar to how we felt following the game they won at Fir Park," said McCall.

"We all know Dundee United are capable of fighting back and the goal before half-time gave them a lift.

"The second half we had to show a bit of grit and dig deep, we knew that we would have to defend well to get anything and with a young defence we did fantastically to get the win.

"It was a great bit of vision from Henrik Ojamaa to pick out Chris Humphrey and he took a good touch before producing a fantastic finish - it was a goal worth of winning any game."

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
