McNamara praises character

McNamara praises character

Dundee United boss Jackie McNamara praised his side after fighting back to beat St Mirren 3-2 at Tannadice.

Late goals from substitutes Brian Graham and Stuart Armstrong and then a dramatic Nadir Ciftci injury-time winner finally snatched the points after the hosts trailed by a couple of goals at the break.

"We got a break at our first goal. It looked offside although I would need to see it again but the lads showed great character to get it back to 2-2 and then pushed on for a winner," McNamara told BBC Scotland. "There was a lot of character from the team. I was kind of planning to make a few changes on the hour mark.

"Young Ryan Dow did really well when he came on when the game was a bit stretched and that helped," he added. "It was a great response from us. I'm delighted about that and to get back to winning ways."
