Keith Watson headed the visitors in front at Dens Park, before Jon Daly and Willo Flood added others during the final 20 minutes.

Houston said: "They were very professional today. Dundee worked very hard and were a spirited side but I don't think anyone could deny we deserved the victory."

The match, however, appeared to swing on a controversial decision when Dundee were denied a spot-kick after Brian McLean had handled the ball.

The hosts were also angry that United were later awarded a penalty after referee Willie Collum had played an advantage that ended with Daly failing to score following a foul by Gary Irvine on Stuart Armstrong.

Collum then blew his whistle giving Daly a second bite of the cherry to find the back of the net from 15 yards.

But Houston added: "When a player's wiped out in the penalty box it's a penalty, isn't it?

"Willie Collum sees it as a penalty I certainly see it as a penalty, because he wiped him out."

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.
