Dundee United survives Ross County scare
Dingwall, Scotland (Sports Network) - Dundee United netted three first-half goals en route to a 4-2 defeat of Ross County at Victoria Park on Sunday.
The visitors built themselves a comfortable lead when Gary Mackay-Steven and Stuart Armstrong scored within two minutes of one another while Ryan Gauld extended United's lead with a goal five minutes before the halftime interval.
It looked to be more of the same in the second half when Nadir Ciftci made it four for Dundee United in the 65th minute, but goals from Ivan Sproule and Rocco Quinn in the 72nd and 77th minutes, respectively, gave Ross County a glimmer of hope heading into the final stretch.
They proved to be nothing more than consolation goals, though, as Dundee United closed out the match to improve to fifth place in the Scottish top flight with eight points, four points better than Ross County.
