Go out and make it right - Houston

Go out and make it right - Houston

With memories still fresh in his mind of their recent horrendous home display against Inverness Caledonian Thistle, Arabs boss Peter Houston reckons the time is right to make amends this weekend.

The Tannadice side were embarrassingly crushed 4-0 by Terry Butcher's newly-promoted outfit following a dreadful performance last time out. And while they must now instead turn their attentions towards Aberdeen, Houston still wants to see some repayment made to the club's loyal supporters for that awful experience.

"Our fans have been brilliant. They've followed us through thick and thin," Houston told BBC Scotland. "That result is something that I will always remember. We've got a lot of making up to do to the fans. So it's in the back of our minds, but the lesson's been learned that we can't go out and under perform like that.

"Dundee United, over the last four years since I've been here, have always thrown in a result like that," he continued. "We lost 4-0 to Motherwell at home and 5-1 to Falkirk, but one thing I'm certain about is we won't have many games like that this season.

"But we've only lost two games away from home all season - against Celtic and Rangers. Now, if we can get our home record in a similar shape, and make Tannadice the fortress that we want it to be, then we'd be a right good side."
