Calm heads required - Houston

Calm heads required - Houston

Dundee United manager Peter Houston won't panic after seeing his side sink to second bottom of the table at the weekend.

An emphatic 4-0 defeat in the Highlands against Inverness Caledonian Thistle left an ailing United side without a win from their last five league games.

"The performance wasn't good enough and I am not here to make excuses," Houston told the Dundee Courier. "But we are building a new team again. The team has changed again, just like last year — quite considerably in fact.

"I would like to think that it is early days. There's no need to panic," he continued. "I would also like to think it's a time for calm heads all over the place with regards to myself, the players and the supporters. I still believe on our day we can beat anybody."

However, Houston can expect another real challenge this weekend when visiting recently deposed leaders Motherwell.

Newcomer Paul McMullan opened the visitors' account on seventeen minutes when taking advantage of defensive uncertainty to find the bottom corner from Billy King's cross.

Fellow summer recruit King soon added a second with a 25-yard left-footed shot after cutting inside, while defender Mark Durnan claimed another from James Kea
