Dundee United boss Tam Courts has hailed Manchester United loanee Dylan Levitt’s rocket in the 2-0 win over Motherwell last night as a “real moment of magic” from the Welshman.
Levitt scored the opener before Tony Watt opened his Dundee United account with a goal against his former side to help United leapfrog Motherwell into fourth place in the league.
“Dylan’s goal was again a real moment of magic,” added Courts.
“As soon as the ball fell, you couldn’t have better hand-picked someone for it to fall to.
“He caught it so sweet and it was another big moment in front of the fans.
“That’s the trials and tribulations of being a football manager. It’s a long season.
“The league, over the last couple of months has become really tightly condensed.
“We came back after the New Year and arrested a bit of a slump and resuscitated the team and got ourselves back functioning again.
“The next part of the challenge for the players tonight was to put a performance in and really excite the home fans.
“It’s a huge three points because the incentive was there for us to try and get ourselves into fourth with a hard fought win.”
Levitt’s goal capped off an impressive performance from the midfielder that saw him have 56 touches and complete 30 of his attempted 40 passes (75%).
So far he’s made 17 appearances for the Terrors, scoring twice, as Courts’ side look to push on and secure European football next season.
