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."

Boss pleased to get through

Manager Ray McKinnon was pleased to get through against Queen of the South but not particularly happy with the second-half performance.

Queen of the South 2 Dundee United 3

Dundee United took command of their Challenge Cup semi-final with three first-half goals before hosts Queen of the South staged a late rally.

Charlie Telfer and Scott Fraser both netted inside eleven minutes for the visitors and on loan forward Tony Andreu then added a delightful third.

Stephen Dobbie managed a reply early in the second period and Derek Lyle grabbed another during injury-time - but it's United meeting either St Mirren or The New Saints in the final.
