Late winner boosts Houston

Late winner boosts Houston

Dundee United manager Peter Houston praised the contribution of goalscorer Johnny Russell after his late winner at Motherwell.

The 22-year-old striker made it three goals in his last four games as he headed in Keith Watson's inviting 84th minute delivery in a 1-0 victory at Fir Park.

"It's not the first time he's scored a goal like that," Houston told BBC Scotland. "He scored at McDiarmid Park last year with the exact same type of header.

"I don't think it was a header across goal, I think it was a header trying to score a goal," he continued. "It's deceived the goalkeeper and gone over the top of his head. For me, that shows great quality. Great ball in from Keith Watson. Perfect delivery and a perfect header as well."
