Go do it again says Houston

Go do it again says Houston

Peter Houston called for his players to go on another long unbeaten run after it was finally ended against Celtic at the weekend.

David Goodwillie's first goal in six games wasn't enough to rescue the hosts as their eleven-match undefeated sequence fell with a 3-1 loss to the SPL leaders at Tannadice.

"I have got to give great credit to the players. They have done well recently," he told BBC Scotland "We have got through important cup ties and won league matches here as well.

"But I think the better team won and we have to do better. The first-half performance was really, really poor."

The Tangerines trailed at the break to a couple of deflected efforts and despite improvement found themselves with too much to do.

"We gave ourselves a mountain to climb by playing extremely poorly in the first half," Houston added. "We were second to every ball, we were not passing the ball, not keeping the ball all over the pitch.

"Celtic were fortunate with the two goals that they scored because they took wicked deflections and I think Pernis would have saved them quite comfortably.

"But, when you turn up the way we did in the first half and don't play particularly well, there is always going to be a problem."
