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."

Dundee United struck three times before the interval to account for non-leaguers Buckie Thistle in their Scottish League Cup Group C tie at Victoria Park.

Newcomer Paul McMullan opened the visitors' account on seventeen minutes when taking advantage of defensive uncertainty to find the bottom corner from Billy King's cross.

Fellow summer recruit King soon added a second with a 25-yard left-footed shot after cutting inside, while defender Mark Durnan claimed another from James Kea
