Dundee United are currently bottom of the SPL but boss Craig Levein still has confidence in his team.

Dundee United are currently bottom of the SPL but boss Craig Levein still has confidence in his team.

In fact, going back to last term, United have managed only two wins from their last 19 SPL fixtures.

"I have complete faith in the players to do the job and, right now, what we must do is stick together and keep doing what we believe in," he said in the Evening Telegraph.

"Of course, I am disappointed we haven't won yet, but, if I look at the games we've had so far, I'd say we have five points less than we might have and, over the course of a season, that is not a lot.

"If we keep playing the way we are, I am confident that ground will be made up. We've had a difficult start and Saturday sees the end of a run of five out of our first seven games being away from home and one of the two home games was against Celtic.

"The up side of that is after Saturday we have five of seven at home and, if we keep playing like we are, that is an opportunity to pick up points."
