United trailed 2-0 and 3-1 at Tannadice before captain Jon Daly's double - the second goal coming in injury time - earned them a deserved draw.

Houston's team have scored late goals in three of their last four matches, claiming five points in the process.

"I asked them at half-time to show a wee bit of character and they did just that. I've got to take my hat off to them for that," Houston said.

"I felt we were totally dominant in the second half which speaks volumes for the lads' attitude.

"I must give them great credit for a never-say-die fight back. We got the goals which we deserved and to come from 2-0 down against a side like Killie is never easy.

"There was some stick coming from the supporters which I have to say was a bit disappointing. We played some really good football and scored some goals to match."
