Mistakes cost us - Houston

Dundee United boss Peter Houston was again left reflecting on mistakes following the 2-1 defeat against Hearts at Tynecastle.

Ryan Stevenson opened the scoring following a slip from defender Brian McLean and then soon added his second of the game from the penalty spot. Keith Watson pulled a goal back for the visitors after the break but it wasn't enough to spark them a full recovery.

"I'm really disappointed because we put so much into the game," Houston told BBC Scotland. "The first goal, big Brian, whose been playing well recently, made an individual error. I thought Gavin [Gunning] should've given him a wee bit of cover as well.

"And, all of a sudden, we find ourselves 1-0 down when I felt that we started quite well," he added. "I thought we battered them in the second half, we pulverised them and the ball doesn't break for us. If we cut out the individual errors, we'll not be long in climbing up this table."

The result found the Tangerines dropping down to eighth and now behind their latest opponents in the table.
