  • United’s Betfred Cup campaign was over almost before it started after a 1-0 defeat against Ross County in Dingwall. The game was more eventful than the scoreline suggested, in which United did not create many chances despite looking good on the ball in spells.

  • The Csaba Laszlo regime at Tannadice finally ended with a 5-1 defeat against Ross County. A hat trick from former United player Billy Mckay and some utterly shambolic defending saw the end of the Hungarian’s 11 month tenure at Tannadice. The day after the game, Csaba Laszlo was sacked and United were left searching for their fifth permanent manager in just over three years.
