Impressed By Performance Against Celtic

Impressed By Performance Against Celtic

Many people were surprised by the poor performance by Dundee United last week, as newly promoted Hamilton Accies ripped them apart in a 3-1 defeat.

Manager Craig Levein was particularly disappointed, after the positive displays he`d witnessed in the pre-season build-up, including a very impressive 45minute spell against Spanish giants Barcelona in a friendly match last month.

If Dundee United hadn`t raised their game against Celtic this weekend, then it could have been another humiliating score-line, but the players rose to the occasion and secured a deserved point in a 1-1 draw.

"I was very hopeful that we would put on a decent show today and we contributed to what was a fantastic match," admitted Craig Levein to the Setanta cameras after the match.

"Last season I could count on 1 hand the number of poor performances we had. I didn`t expect one so early this season, but the lads have bounced back in a terrific manner."

"I thought we played the game the right way. We tried to pass the ball, created some good goal scoring opportunities in the second half and we deserved a point today."

"I thought we defended very well today, but when we need Lukasz Zaluska he made a wonderful save. It looked much more like the unit I expect"

"Celtic had chances to win the game at 1-0, but overall I`m please with our performance and that`s what I must stress."

"If lady luck had been with us today, we might have got a little bit more."

However, Fraser brought the hosts back into it w
