Dundee United manager Micky Mellon says his players are finding answers to their problems as he is linked with the Doncaster Rovers job.

Reports have suggested the Arabs boss is being lined up to take over from Darren Moore next season, Doncaster Rovers looking likely to miss out on the League One play-off places. Mellon was a happy man on Saturday as his team beat Hamilton Accies 1-0 thanks to a Marc McNulty goal.

Now seventh in the Scottish Premiership, Mellon said: “A great win, another clean sheet, the first time we have won on 4G for a long time. So pleased about that and pleased we now know we are going to play in the Scottish Premiership next season after just coming up. I would have liked to have seen us better with the football and build a bit better.

“We are better than what we showed at times technically but we created a lot of chances and could have made the afternoon a bit more comfortable for ourselves. But it’s a valuable three points on the road. They are finding ways of winning now even when we don’t play in the style we want to get at times.”

 

Hamilton boss Brian Rice meanwhile was bemused his side didn’t take the win after a solid display had them take 27 shots at goal: “I can’t believe we didn’t win the game never mind draw it. That’s the best we have played this season by a long way.

“When you have that much possession and playing as well as I thought we were playing, and creating chances, you expect one to go in. But it was just one of those days, it didn’t go in and we made a mistake at the other end and got punished for it.”
