Alan Archibald believes that his Partick Thistle side were good value for their draw against Dundee United.

Partick Thistle manager Alan Archibald believes that his side fully deserved their point after battling back to earn a draw against Dundee United.

Farid El Alagui had given the visitors the lead early on, but Gary Fraser's 75th-minute equaliser ensured that Archibald's men would leave with a point.

"I thought we more than deserved the draw, I thought our play in the second half merited it," Sky Sports News quotes Archibald as saying. "I thought we had enough pressure to maybe get the second but things just weren't dropping for us.

"Even before we got the goal it didn't look like we were going to get it as things were falling either side of our strikers.

"I was delighted when we got the goal, and I thought we were going to push on and maybe deservedly nick the winner."

The Jags remain just one spot above the Scottish Premiership relegation zone, although they have a gap of 17 points over bottom side Hearts.
