Steady approach paying off for United

Dundee United midfielder Willo Flood says his side are simply plotting their European path one game at a time.

A weekend derby win at St Johnstone raised the Terrors into fourth place in the table and ever-closer to catching Motherwell, who are currently one position higher. Should they manage to achieve that and eventually finish third, United would almost certainly earn themselves a Champions League qualifying place due to Rangers being in administration.

"We have not really been thinking about the Champions League. What we have been doing is setting ourselves goals, meeting those targets then moving on to the next thing," Flood revealed to the Dundee Courier. "First off it was to get on a good run to get ourselves up the league, and we have achieved that. Then it was to get into the top six in the SPL, and we got there despite some people writing us off.

"We then went to St Johnstone on Saturday and our aim was to beat them. We were the better team on the day and got into fourth spot and now sit two points ahead of them," he continued. "Our next task is to win at home to Hearts this coming Saturday and put a nice gap between us and them.

"It would be great if we could get clear of St Johnstone and Hearts first off then after that we could hopefully look forward to an exciting end to the season."
