Manager Ray McKinnon was proud of his Dundee United side after their latest scoreless draw with Raith Rovers.

The Tangerines suffered the disappointment of a missed Tony Andreu second-half penalty after defender Lewis Toshney had already been sent-off.

But they remain level on points with Hibernian at the top of the table following their rivals similarly being held by Greenock Morton.

“I’m so proud of the players today as I thought we were the better team for the entire 90 minutes and even when we were down to ten men we were excellent,” McKinnon told BBC Scotland. “We created a few chances but there will be twists and turns in this league all season and we have lots of positives to take forward.

“To get a point against a tough team like Raith with just ten men was absolutely outstanding and if you had said to us three months ago we would be up at the top of the league we would have taken that.”
