McNamara targets top three

Dundee United boss Jackie McNamara is still aiming for a top-three finish following the 1-1 draw at Aberdeen.

The Tangerines led early through Paul Paton but Niall McGinn equalised for their second-placed opponents shortly after the break.

"It's still there, that's the most important thing," McNamara told BBC Radio Scotland. "It would've been nice to get the three points today but on reflection it was a fair result.

"I thought it was a fantastic match, first and foremost," he added. "It would've been nice to get the second goal. Jamie Langfield's had a fantastic save from John Rankin and it was a bit unfortunate that we've had a shot that's hit off one of their heads and gone over."
