'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Terrors now relying on slip-ups

Peter Houston said his Dundee United side were still winners despite Champions League qualification now being out of their hands.

That followed their weekend 2-2 draw with Hearts after the visitors were forced to twice come from behind at Tannadice. It was sufficent for United to now require third-placed Motherwell to slip up over the course of their remaining three games.

"If you'd ask me at the start of the season I'd have bitten your hand off for top six," Houston admitted to the Daily Record. "Now we're there, we would bite your hand for Europe.

"But we've kept four points between ourselves and Hearts who are sixth, with three games to go," he added. "If this bunch get a European place it's a huge achievement because we know what it was like early in the season. We struggled and the players have worked miracles to go on the run we've had. I can't praise them enough."
