Dundee United goalkeeper Rado Cierzniak has been praised for the way he has recovered from his Dens derby despair.
The Polish goalie spent the rest of the week apologising to anyone who would listen after his blunder gifted Dundee the opening goal in their 3-1 win.
He also didn’t exactly cover himself in glory for the Dark Blues’ second goal that night – a James McPake header – but was in sparkling form the following Saturday as he produced a string of excellent saves at the Tangerines beat Hamilton Accies.
That ability to bounce back against the Accies impressed the United management team.
Tannadice coach Darren Jackson said: “It was pleasing to see Rado play like that on Saturday because he was very, very upset and disappointed with the freak error (against Dundee).
“His response was great.
“You want to how people respond after making mistakes and Rado was outstanding on Saturday.
“There was the save from the freekick but I would argue that two of his best saves came in the first half when the ball was bouncing up off the surface.
“Goalies do make mistakes and most of the time they end up as lost goals but Rado showed character to play the way he did in that next match.”
