Micky Mellon


Dundee United

manager, believes that the team has been playing well and considers a very big part of this well-played game with


 owed to

Benjamin Siegrist

, the goalkeeper of the team for saving goals.

Former Tranmere boss was delighted about the changes and how they paid off.

He said:

“I thought we played with the handbrake on in the first half.

“We said we had to come here, play on the front foot and be aggressive in certain areas.

“We knew Hibs would play out from the back but we were not as aggressive as we wanted, it was a bit of shadow boxing.

“We might have made a change at half time but wanted to let it roll and see if we could get more out of them.

“But we made the change, changed the shape to get pace in wide areas and get Marc McNulty nearer to Lawrence Shankland.

“We knew that would open us up a little bit to the pace of Hibs but it was a bit of risk and reward at times to try and force an equaliser and I’m pleased we were able to do that.

“The boys kept going, if I’m honest I think Hibs went for the line too fast and let us get into the game.”

Jack Ross

, Hibs head coach, says that he had never been angrier to the players and claims that it was because of the team.

He says:

“The players feel the same as me, they’re a brilliant group and I don’t have any issue with that.

“Their willingness to do what we ask of them is great.

“It’s just the nature of football, that little moment can change the mood very quickly.

“I don’t think we defended poorly in the main either.”
