Relief for United boss

Relief for United boss

Dundee United manager Jackie McNamara said he was relieved decisions from officials didn't prove too costly during the weekend 3-2 victory over Kilmarnock.

Alexei Eremenko was shown to have been in an offside position for Killie`s opening goal while a hand turned the ball into the net for their second.

"There was a suggestion there was a deflection [at John Rankin`s winner] but looking back at the highlights I didn't see one - although I did see the offside goal and the handball for the other ones," McNamara told the Dundee Courier. "The good thing was those decisions never cost us. It was a good strike from the lad but it should have been given offside.

"There's no point griping about it, it's not going to change things," he added. "But thankfully it didn't affect the result and we managed to score more goals than they did."

Weekend match-winner Scott McDonald felt manager Ray McKinnon was fully entitled to blast his players during the narrow victory against Brechin City.

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
