Jackie McNamara: Dundee United seven points adrift of European place

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."

enteke is an absolute steal for £32.5m, he would get into any team in the world (except Barcelona) at the moment. I've seen many very good strikers in my 30+ years as a Villa fan. This guy is the best without question.
