Peter Houston hails Dundee United’s resilience after away triumph

Peter Houston was full of praise for his Dundee United side after they came from behind to beat Ross County 2-1 in Dingwall.

Johnny Russell cancelled out Iain Vigurs’ opener before Stuart Armstrong hit a winner in the 65th minute.

It is the third time this month the Terrors have come from behind to claim SPL points.

Houston said: "Again we went a goal behind but we showed great character and got a goal back fairly early after Ross County scored.

"From there on in I only thought there was going to be one winner. We created a few chances and I'm delighted with the three points.

"It was a tough, tough match. To come up here and get a win was never going to be easy. Other teams have struggled up here, so I have to give my players great credit for getting the three points today.

"I've got to mention, I thought our supporters were magnificent today. They cheered the team from the start right to the final whistle."

On Armstrong’s winning goal, Houston added: "It was great deep cross. I always say put a cross into the box because Jon Daly will get on the end of things.

"He did get on the end of it but unselfishly he put it across the goal rather than score himself and Stuart Armstrong scores from a yard out.

"It was good for him because I thought he was a threat, his pace and his running power. I'm delighted for the young boy because the only thing missing from his game just now has been goals.

"But he has goals in him, hopefully he will go on a run now."
