Arabs still short of flair

Arabs still short of flair

Dundee United are missing too many of their flair players to be especially entertaining according to manager Peter Houston.

The Arabs are currently without winger Craig Conway and midfielder Danny Swanson, but were still good enough to record a third successive victory in all competitions against Kilmarnock at the weekend.

And their latest success moved them up into fourth place in the table and only a couple of points behind Motherwell.

"We are missing flair players - Craig Conway and Danny Swanson," Houston admitted to BBC Sport. "[Last season] we were entertaining, we were getting crosses into the box, we had Swanson's directness and dribbling skills. We've not got that just now.

"But when you put in Scotty Robertson, Prince Buaben, Morgaro Gomis and David Robertson, you'll get 100% effort," he continued. "But credit to them, they are in and it is up to Conway and Swanson to try to get back in the team now."

Boss pleased to get through

Manager Ray McKinnon was pleased to get through against Queen of the South but not particularly happy with the second-half performance.

Queen of the South 2 Dundee United 3

Dundee United took command of their Challenge Cup semi-final with three first-half goals before hosts Queen of the South staged a late rally.

Charlie Telfer and Scott Fraser both netted inside eleven minutes for the visitors and on loan forward Tony Andreu then added a delightful third.

Stephen Dobbie managed a reply early in the second period and Derek Lyle grabbed another during injury-time - but it's United meeting either St Mirren or The New Saints in the final.
