No ref complaints from Houston

Dundee United manager Peter Houston refused to criticise referee Brian Winter for his apparent mistake in failing to send off St Johnstone substitute Steven Anderson in his side's 1-0 home win.United's victory over their derby rivals - courtesy of David Goodwillie's 61st-minute goal - ended in controversy when Anderson appeared to be booked for the second time in the match, but Winter did not brandish a red card and the Saints defender remained on the pitch for the closing stages.Houston felt it was a genuine error, saying: "If it is a mistake from Brian, then it will be an honest mistake."I did not know at the time that Anderson was due to be sent off as there was a spate of bookings and I was concentrating on which of my players had been shown a yellow card."There was an incident where five players were booked at once and I believe now that Steven was the first player to be shown a yellow."Brian might have made a mistake by not making a note of that but these things happen. I hope he is dealt with leniently because he's an honest guy and we all make mistakes."
