I want to win every game - McNamara

New manager Jackie McNamara described an emerging self-belief as his Dundee United side eased to a second straight win under his leadership courtesy of a 3-1 triumph against Hearts.

Striker Johnny Russell gave them the perfect start on two minutes before Willo Flood and substitute Michael Gardyne later added to it after the visitors had seen midfielder Ryan Stevenson sent-off.

"I thought we controlled it," McNamara told BBC Scotland . "If I'm nit-picking I'm disappointed to lose a goal. Hearts were down to 10 men and sitting in. We seemed to make things a little difficult in terms of possession instead of going to hurt them.

"If the lads have a bit of belief in themselves and pass the ball properly we can give anyone problems," he added. "I want to win every game. That is my target. I don't set my team out to draw a game."

Last weekend McNamara witnessed his first game in charge since arriving from Partick Thistle ending with a 3-0 success over Rangers in the Scottish Cup.
