Dundee United 3-2 Saints

Last updated : 16 March 2014 By Stuart Gillespie

It's not the despair that gets you, it's the hope. I didn't expect us to win yesterday, in fact I thought we'd lose quite comfortably. I could take that as Dundee United are a good side. However, we got ourselves into a 2-0 lead and were looking comfortable. Maybe, just maybe, we'd get the three points and take another huge step towards safety. Then the roof fell in.

As soon as Brian Graham got one back for Dundee United, you just knew we'd mess it up. Stuart Armstrong equalised, before Nadir Ciftci scored the winner in stoppage time. All that after first half goals from Paul McGowan and Steven Thompson looked to have put us well in control, with United rather sluggish and the Buddies impressive.

Apparently the first United goal featured a number of players that were offside, so the officials have to take the blame for that one. However, they're not the reason we shipped another two goals and ended up with nothing. The players and management have to hold their hands up for that one.

The nature of the defeat is a huge blow and will have hit morale hard. What will happen the next time we're ahead going into the last five or 10 minutes?

And the worst part is Ross County and Partick Thistle also won, sending us back to second bottom ahead of a trip to Parkhead. A day to forget.
