'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Defender warns against slow start

Dundee United defender Barry Douglas has warned another slow start could spell disaster for his club in the Scottish Cup.

The Tangerines have spent recent weeks chasing the majority of games after conceding early and must avoid doing the same at second division Stranraer in the fourth round of the competition on Saturday.

"It has been the story of our season," Douglas admitted to the Dundee Courier. "We don't know why it is happening but we need to try and rectify it before the season gets any longer.

"I wouldn't say it's a mental problem. We are just slow in coming out of the blocks, for whatever reason," he continued. "We need to find a solution. We are leaving ourselves too many uphill tasks by giving goals away. When we go behind, that's when we start playing."
