Houston rages at collapse

Houston rages at collapse

Dundee United boss Peter Houston was understandably raging after his side threw away an early three-goal advantage before eventually rescuing a bizarre 4-4 draw with Inverness Caledonian Thistle at Tannadice.

Skipper Jon Daly and Rudi Skacel added to a Josh Meekings own-goal inside the opening eight minutes until the visitors fought back to incredibly lead 4-3 with just four minutes remaining.

But the hosts were ultimately saved as Daly dramatically added his second of the contest from an injury-time penalty.

"I'm very frustrated if I'm being honest - we're 3-0 up after eight or nine minutes and we should be seeing games off at home," Houston told BBC Scotland. "We created six or seven chances in that first half and the game should have been out of sight. And what happens is you give them two goals and they're right back in it."
