Motherwell just gone 2-1 up on Celtic and St Johnstone now 1-2 up on 10-man Dundee so currently sitting 4th ..... need a goal of our own !!!

Sounds like we were hanging on a bit at the end there. Pretty good result, tbh - United have been improving, and we had a new combination at the heart of central defence, which might have been vulnerable. Devine had a good game on Saturday, though and sounded even better tonight.

 

Glad Dundee managed to equalise against St Johnstone, though, to keep us in the top three for Saturday.

The result was very important we still hold a 4 point lead over 7th place and united themselves. We have a chance to move 7 clear if we win the derby with a possible 12 points left to play for before the split. A win would have been cracking but i couldnt care less if motherwell or st johnstone get ahead at this moment in time as it is so tight that as long as we get top 6 then we can concentrate on the push for second afterwards.

That was as good a nil-nil as you'll see for a while.  There was some really slick passing play from both teams at times, though in truth United looked more likely to win as the game went on.  Jackie Mac has them well drilled already, and if they play like that for the rest of the season they are a good bet to finish second.  They seemed to be playing a 4-5-1/4-3-3 and the extra man in midfield allowed them to dominate.  That said, we spurned a few chances of our own - if Andy Shinnie had headed Doran's beautiful cross either side of the keeper he would have scored.

 

As stated above, Devine was absolutely terrific, as indeed was Meekings.  In fact, our back four were probably our best four players for me.  The forwards showed only flashes of quality, though Andy Shinnie looked lively.  Doran was getting a bit of stick, but our best chances seemed to come from his crosses.  Bringing on Foran to play up front was the right move as we were forced to resort to long balls, but I'd rather have Pepper's energy than Sutherland's faffing anyday.

 

As with almost every game we've played this season, the ref was a complete clown.  Meekings got booked for a beautifully clean sliding challenge on Russell - although it was quite clear the United player was hurt in the process.  I thought it was pretty unreasonable that some fans booed when he limped off later on - he'd come off worse from a few crunching (but fair) challenges and had tried to get up and get on with it rather than complaining.

 

Not a bad result, in my opinion.  Dundee United look twice the team they were when we humped them 4-0 earlier in the campaign.
