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

Reality check at Killie

Dundee United manager Peter Houston said their 3-1 defeat at Kilmarnock was a serious reality check.

The Tangerines went into the game as league leaders following a couple of comfortable 3-0 home wins already this season.

But a disastrous sequence of events early in the second-half found them soon trailing by that same margin.

"We'll have to work very hard, and harder than we did today, to finish even top six," Houston told BBC Scotland. "If we finish top six, with the limit of squad we have, we will be doing very well.

"I've been wanting a couple of players to bring in, but we can't afford it," he added. "We're a team that's punched above our weight over the last number of seasons.

"But, if we get two or three injuries and two or three suspensions, we are playing kids that nobody's ever heard of."
