Dundee United boss Csaba says Fraser should have had four goals against Dunfermline

Dundee United manager Csaba Laszlo believes the Tangerines brace hero Scott Fraser should be scoring goals for fun every weekend.

The 22-year-old midfielder hit a double as United downed Dunfermline 2-1 at Tannadice on Saturday to move back to the top of the Championship.

Two first-half goals, including a terrific free-kick, gave the Tannadice men the advantage but the Pars pulled one back through a Declan McManus penalty in the second 45.

However, boss Csaba was happy with his star man and the team performance nonetheless.

“I’m unhappy about it because he has to score four!” he said.

“No, it’s fantastic, it’s good if he is scoring every game two goals it’s OK.

“But really we saw that this was about teamwork.

“Generally, everybody played in their position when needed.

“We had two big chances, especially Sam (Stanton), if he just heads in it is game over.

“In this direction we must be better.

“If you are more clinical you make your life easier.

“Dunfermline pressed us and they tried but they didn’t have a clear chance.

“We made a chance for them with the penalty.

“If you are a little bit clever you make a tactical fault, you go back into shape and it’s no penalty, it’s nothing and you just play football.

“I think in this direction we must be happy that in the 15-20 minutes of the game we don’t panic like we did against Brechin in the last 10 minutes.

“This is already a development.”

Another influential player in the win, which takes United a point clear of St Mirren at the top of the Championship, was Willo Flood.

Unfortunately, the Terrors skipper came off with a serious injury in stoppage time for William Edjenguele.

It is not clear whether the Irishman has broken or just dislocated his left shoulder.

Csaba added: “I am very sorry for Willo because he injured his shoulder.

“I hope he can come back very quick because he is a very important player and a very important person in the dressing-room. If we lose him it will be difficult for us.

“We need an X-ray to see if something is broken or not.

“I hope not because at the moment it is not swollen.”
