Houston wants better this time

Houston wants better this time

Dundee United travel to the Caledonian Stadium and take on Inverness Caledonian Thistle this weekend.

With no further injury worries the visitors were expected to rely on the same group narrowly defeated by Celtic last time out. Midfielder Danny Swanson and the versatile Scott Severin remain on the sidelines.

Manager Peter Houston was seriously disappointed with the performance against title challengers Celtic last weekend and will be looking for much better this time around.

"We were poor last Sunday - there's no getting away from that," he told BBC Scotland. "Inverness won't surprise me - I still think they're a good team with good players and they can beat anyone on their day.

"We know when we go up there, the emphasis is on them to try and score and entertain their fans," continued Houston. "We have to make sure we're solid enough not to concede any goals and take our chances."

Caley hope to welcome back defender Thomas Piermayr from injury but Aidan Chippendale, Josh Meekings and David Proctor are still out, with Aaron Doran and Owain Tudur-Jones both lacking match sharpness.
