SPL video highlights of Dundee United spirited comeback against Ross County

Dundee United took advantage of defensive slackness to come from behind against Ross County.

Goals from Johnny Russell and Stuart Armstrong turned the game on its head after Iain Vigurs had fired the Staggies ahead.

The first half saw numerous chances at goal but both goalkeepers were in fine form to keep the sides level.

In the second period, after more than 350 minutes without a goal in this fixture, two goals came along in the space of four minutes.

Vigurs scored in the 48th minute with an acrobatic header after he got on the end of a superb cross from Richard Brittain.

It was all-square four minutes later when Russell raced on to a long ball and slid the ball past the advancing Michael Fraser into the corner of the net from the edge of the box.

United got their noses in front in the 65th minute when a deep cross from Gary Mackay-Steven was knocked down at the far post by Jon Daly and Armstrong stooped to head home from close range.

Peter Houston’s men could have made the result more empathic right at the end, but Rudi Skacel was denied at point blank range by Fraser.
