Houston in Blackpool talks

Houston in Blackpool talks

Dundee United have given permission for manager Peter Houston to talk to Blackpool over their current managerial vacancy.

The Seasiders are in need of a replacement following Michael Appleton leaving the club for Blackburn Rovers after only 65 days in charge.

Bradford City's Phil Parkinson has already turned down an approach over a possible move to Bloomfield Road.

Houston has been in charge at Tannadice since 2010 and won the Scottish Cup in his first season while also managing three top-four finishes in the SPL.

But his current deal ends in May and the 54-year-old was still waiting on further developments over extending his stay.

Striker Scott McDonald scored a vital late winner to keep Dundee United firmly setting the pace at the top of the Championship.

The Tangerines included Scott Fraser for the suspended Paul McMullan and his curled effort after moving inside was denied by goalkeeper Graeme Smith.

Both James Keatings and McDonald also threatened for hosts seeking a third consecutive league victory having previously accounted for Inverness CT and Queen of the South.

The visitors were then close
