Houston calls for fight

Dundee United manager Peter Houston has called for more fight after witnessing his side suffer a 3-0 defeat at home to Hearts.

The Terrors are preparing for a midweek League Cup tie against Second Division leaders Queen of the South, who have already achieved a
couple of particularly notable results this season.

"We were bullied all over the pitch by a decent Hearts side," Houston told BBC Scotland. "It is a test of character now. We go to Dumfries against a side that beat Hibs in the cup and beat Rangers in the Ramsdens Cup as well.

"They have done exceptionally well, a team that work very hard, have good young players and good legs about the team," he added.
"We will need to go down there and battle."

Houston should at least be boosted by the return of striker Jon Daly after the striker was only fit enough to make the bench at the weekend.
