Another spot of bother for United

Dundee United's poor penalty record in the Scottish Communities League Cup was maintained last night as they exited the competition against Hearts at Tannadice.

The Tangerines have also recently lost games against Rangers, Celtic and Falkirk following shoot-outs and it happened again when defender Sean Dillon missed from the spot to leave the ten-man visitors 5-4 winners on penalties.

Hearts had earlier seen Darren Barr sent-off as the game ended 1-1 after extra-time - home striker Johnny Russell cancelling out Callum Paterson's opener.

"I am disappointed but the biggest disappointment for me isn't the penalty kicks, it's the 120 minutes that went before that," manager Peter Houston told the Dundee Courier. "I don't think we did enough to win the game. I thought Hearts dominated the first half and bullied us a wee bit.

"In the second we started to play a bit and were causing them problems," he added. "After the sending-off, they got men behind the ball, hoping to play out the game while maybe hitting us on the counter-attack."
