Dundee United midfielder Stewart Murdoch is continuing to enjoy his recent switch into a right-back role.

The 27-year-old actually made the change in position last season, but still found time to supply the cross that resulted in Scott McDonald’s late winning goal against Brechin City at the weekend.

“When the manager asked me to play at right-back last season, he told me to concentrate on being a defender, so that’s really what I’ve done since I moved there,” Murdoch admitted to the Dundee Evening Telegraph. “The more games I play, though, the more I’ve seen that you need to get forward and put crosses in and it’s something I’ve worked on.

“I’ve found that harder than when I’m back defending because tackling has always been part of my game, so that side of being a full-back hasn’t been a problem,” he continued. “So I was happy I got a couple of decent balls into the box on Saturday and I was very pleased with the cross for the goal.”
