Dundee United manager Csaba Laszlo reckoned the Tangerines lacked energy, desire and a will-to-win at Inverness.

United suffered yet another bad result – a 1-0 loss to Caley Thistle – in what has been a miserable second season in the Championship.

Much of the pressure fhas, of course, been piled on Laszlo as boss but the Hungarian rightly pointed the finger at his players after this one.

He said: “You have to question some players because this game tonight gave us a good possibility to move forward in the table.

“Inverness, I don’t think, had a great hope of going into the play-offs but it looked like they wanted to go into the play-offs while we were just happy to play, which is not OK.

“We have tried everything, bringing in fresh players and changing things.

“We can talk, talk, talk, but you have to bring energy to the game.

“Nobody gives you gifts in football,” added Laszlo.

“Desire, will-to-win the game and more energy – we needed those things.

“You can talk about a lack of confidence forever but you get back your confidence by winning games.

“We missed, once again, big chances when Scott McDonald and Sam Stanton missed.

“We went a goal down but couldn’t score.

“We can talk about many things but this is a very, very disappointing result for us.”
