A solid foundation has been the real improvement in recent games according to Dundee United manager Peter Houston.

The Tangerines defeated their city neighbours Dundee by a 3-0 scoreline for the second time this season at the weekend.

And Houston was particularly pleased by them showing increased resistance at the back following a number of games recently in which they have conceded early.

"We're a team who will always create chances and when you do that you have to make sure you keep things tight at the back."
