Douglas set to end months of frustration

Douglas set to end months of frustration

Dundee United defender Barry Douglas says he is a stronger character following the frustration of last season.

The 22-year-old managed only thirteen appearances last term as his opportunities proved restricted by the fine form of regular left-back Paul Dixon.

But with Dixon now having switched allegiences to English Championship newcomers Huddersfield Town over the summer, Douglas should see his patience finally be rewarded with a first-team place this time around.

"Last season was incredibly frustrating and I started to question myself," he told the Dundee Courier. "I went into speak to the gaffer a few times but he kept reassuring me that it wasn't anything I was doing wrong, it was just that Dicker was in such great form.

"He was absolutely flying and sometimes you just have to accept that. It was difficult though as I wasn't playing and it would have been easy to let the frustration get the better of me," Douglas continued. "But I just kept my head down and worked hard on the training field and hopefully it will pay off this year if I get my chance."
