Dundee United have launched an investigation into the behaviour of first-team players Paul Paton and Mark Wilson.
A late penalty from Nadir Ciftci helped Dundee United overcome 10-man Partick Thistle 1-0 at Tannadice to close the gap on Scottish Premiership leaders Hamilton.
TANNADICE made for a fetching seasonal scene on a glorious afternoon on Tayside, its pitch and terraces bathed in autumnal oranges, reds and yellows.
KILMARNOCK continued their excellent start to the season by leap-frogging champions Celtic and early season pace-setters Inverness Caledonian Thistle to move into the top three at the expense of the surprisingly lacklustre leaders last night.
Dundee United remained top of the Scottish Premiership with a deserved 2-0 win over Tayside opponents St Johnstone at Tannadice.
