Dundee United manager Jackie McNamara was thrilled with how his players responded after going a goal down on Saturday.

The Tangerines opened the scoring through Gary Mackay-Steven in the 10th minute before Kilmarnock hit back through Alexei Eremenko and Kris Boyd at Tannadice.

However, McNamara’s side rallied to eventually win 3-2 courtesy of goals from Newcastle United loanee Curtis Good and John Rankin which prompted words of praise from the boss.

"I was delighted with the way the players showed character to come from behind and win the game,” he said.

"It was a big win for us, having been 2-1 down. It was a great game and fortunately we came out on top.

"Both teams played good football and all credit to Kilmarnock for playing the way they did.

"They came and passed the ball and have some good players. Alexei Eremenko played well in spells and Kris Boyd is always a threat.

"We were a bit sloppy at times with our passing. We were passing the ball back a lot but once we got back to 2-2 we looked strong again."
