Houston defends official
Peter Houston says that the error made by referee Brian Winter, who booked St Johnstone substitute Steven Anderson twice, was a completely honest one.
The official gave Anderson a yellow card for a foul on David Goodwillie in the 72nd minute, and then cautioned him again later for another offense on the same player, but failed to send him off as the Arabs eventually came out on top 1-0 at Tannadice.
"Brian is an honest referee. If he made an error it'll be an honest one. I hope he's not punished for it," Houston told BBC Sport.
"It was a difficult game to handle because there were a few tackles flying in here, there and everywhere. He has obviously just had a wee mix-up," he added.
