Peter Houston: Dundee United manager's wait for a home win continues

Gary Mackay-Steven put the hosts ahead in the 52nd minute but Richard Brittain levelled eight minutes from time to leave United still without a win at Tannadice since August.

Houston said: "We needed a second goal to kill them off and, to be fair, it was a wonder strike from Brittain.

"But I can't fault the players for their attitude and commitment. It's just that the home record might be a mental thing for them.

"We played some decent stuff in the second half but sometimes these things are set to try us.

"Hopefully, though, we can mend the home record as soon as we can.

"Our away form is good but if we could just sort the home thing it would be great and make a difference."

Meanwhile, Houston is promising business as usual as the Tayside club step up their search for a new manager after he revealed recently he would be leaving in the summer.

He said: "I'm ignoring all speculation. I've declared I'm going and that gives me five months for the board of directors to find a new manager.

"So they have to get a head start on their work to ensure they get the right person.

"I'll carry on as normal. I'm contracted until May and want to get the team into Europe for the fourth season running."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
