Boss Peter Houston is desperate for Dundee United not to concede in the first leg of their Europa League third qualifying round tie with Dinamo Moscow at Tannadice Park on Thursday.

He said: "First and foremost I would like no goals against that is the first criteria I would like, however we are at our best when we are attacking.

"I feel that if we go out with the right attitude, which I'm sure we will, and work very, very hard we can get that clean sheet at home and give us something to hold onto in Moscow I would be more than delighted.

"We know what we are up against - but as I always say we will go out there with the spirit we have in the team and the player's attitude and the commitment to the club and we will go out and try and make the supporters happy.

"They play a big part in it they will turn up in their numbers tomorrow and I'm sure with the supporters behind them the team will go out and do their very best."
