Boss unhappy with defending

Boss unhappy with defending

Dundee United manager Csaba Laszlo was critical of the defending during the 4-2 defeat at Aberdeen in the Scottish Cup.

Former winger Gary Mackay-Steven scored twice to cancel out replies from Sam Stanton and substitute Paul McMullan as the favourites eased through. Adam Rooney and Kenny McLean were similarly on target.

"I'm very disappointed, especially in the first half as we get back in the game then immediately give away a gift goal," Laszlo told BBC Scotland. "In the second half we played a little bit better and tried to dominate the game. We scored a
second goal and near the end we had a big possibility to score another one.

"But I recognise that Aberdeen were the better team, but generally with the spirit of the team I was very pleased," he added. "If you play football the first aim to avoid giving away the sort of goals that we did in this game, but if we get the spirit we showed in the second half I think we can have some good results in the league now."
