Dundee United boss: 'We deserved to win'

Dundee United manager Peter Houston applauds his side's 1-0 win at Motherwell but insists that he won't be getting carried away.

Dundee United manager Peter Houston has insisted that his side were deserving of their 1-0 victory at Motherwell in the Scottish Premier League.

The Tangerines boss praised his team's hard work, but insisted that his players will not be getting carried away now they are climbing up the league table.

"I won't get carried away," BBC Sport quotes him as saying. "When we were second bottom and people were asking questions, I always said 'judge us at the end of the season'. I never look at the league at this time of the year.

"After some bad performances, we've gone back to basics. We defended well as a team again and worked very, very had and we've got our reward."

A late Johnny Russell strike sealed the points for Dundee United, moving them up to seventh in the Scottish Premier League.
