Tangerines miss leading pair

Tangerines miss leading pair

Dundee United boss Peter Houston was left to contemplate the absence of a couple of his leading forwards following the shut-out with Ross County on Friday evening.

Skipper Jon Daly was forced to miss out with a knee injury while Gary Mackay-Steven is still unavailable following recent surgery.

That allowed their Dingwall visitors to maintain a fifth clean sheet of the season and extend their overall unbeaten sequence to 40 games.

"Up until the final third we were excellent," Houston told stv.tv. "What we need to work on now is where we're going to get our goals from.

"We missed the presence of Daly and Gary Mackay-Steven," he added. "Jon has had dodgy knees over the last number of years. It could be a couple of weeks."

Dundee United remain fourth in the table following a scoreless draw at still winless Falkirk.

The Tangerines were forced into an early change after recent arrival Paul Quinn departed the action with a head knock.

Fellow centre-back Mark Durnan then headed over a Paul McMullan corner while Fraser Fyvie's volley from the edge of the area glanced an upright.

However, Craig Sibbald's header also tested the woodwork at the other end and Scott McDonald's diving reply was too high
