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.
