Dundee United Battle For 1-0 Win

Manager Craig Levein has praised the fitness of his side, after 10-man Dundee United battled their way to a 1-0 victory over Aberdeen.

Youngster David Robertson stole all 3 points from Jimmy Calderwood`s side, with a 90th minute strike.

Noel Hunt pounced on a poor pass-back from defender Andrew Considine, and set-up Robertson from 12-yards, to give Dundee United their 1st win of the season for 8 years.

However, Levein has put the final result down to the hard-shift his players have put in during pre-season training - training which some United players have claimed was the toughest they`ve ever experienced under any manager.

"The sprit the players showed today was fantastic," admitted Levein to the BBC.

"I would have settled for a draw a half time, but we dug in and out fitness is fantastic.

"It needed to be since we were down to 10 men for 50 minutes, which was a difficult situation, especially against the quality of Aberdeen.'

"It was our 1st opening home win in 10 years and we sent the supporters home with smiles on their faces."

At last, an opening day win, we've waited 8 years for another one!
If only Falkirk and Rangers hadnt won more convincingly, otherwise Dundee United might even have ended up top of the SPL tonight!!!
