Douglas happy to step up

 Douglas happy to step up

New signing Barry Douglas believes he can be the latest to make the step up and really impress a new audience at Tannadice.

The 20-year-old has arrived from Queen's Park on a three-year deal after manager Peter Houston held off interest from a number of other clubs.

Morgaro Gomis, Craig Conway and Danny Swanson are amongst those who have made a real impression on Tayside after moving up the divisions, and the Glasgow-born defender is certain he can follow their example and win favour with the fans.

"It`s obviously down to the player himself to produce the goods but the club has showed beyond all doubt they`re willing to give boys from those leagues a chance," he told the Press & Journal.

"You just have to look at what Craig Conway did in the Scottish Cup final and he came from Ayr in the first place.

"First things first, I need to come in and adapt to full-time football. It`s a challenge I`m relishing."

Dundee United remain fourth in the table following a scoreless draw at still winless Falkirk.

The Tangerines were forced into an early change after recent arrival Paul Quinn departed the action with a head knock.

Fellow centre-back Mark Durnan then headed over a Paul McMullan corner while Fraser Fyvie's volley from the edge of the area glanced an upright.

However, Craig Sibbald's header also tested the woodwork at the other end and Scott McDonald's diving reply was too high
