Tangerines fate sealed by Kiss

Dundee United's poor run was maintained following a 3-0 defeat to lowly Ross County at Victoria Park.

Hungarian midfielder Filip Kiss struck either side of the break and French striker Yoann Arquin also opened his account for the Highlands club.

The visitors included new loan striker Farid El Alagui, who called goalkeeper Michael Fraser into early action and John Rankin was then wide from the rebound.

Graham Carey replied with a curling free-kick that was well-saved by Radosław Cierzniak, who also gathered from both Richard Brittain and Carey from the edge of the area.

The Staggies moved in front just ahead of the break when Carey's cross was met by a powerful header from Kiss before former United defender Brian McLean had another effort ruled out for offside.

A decent run from Gary Mackay-Steven following the interval allowed El Alagui to hoist over while substitute Nadir Ciftci presented another chance but Mackay-Steven was too high. Ciftci was then narrowly wide from a further attempt.

However, a solo break from Jordan Slew gave Arquin a simple finish as the hosts doubled their advantage midway through the second-half.

And five minutes later on loan Cardiff City midfielder Kiss struck a long-range effort over Cierzniak to put the contest well out of reach despite substitute Stuart Armstrong having a late reply disallowed.
