PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Livingston boss David Martindale has hailed Dundee United’s victory over AZ Alkmaar and believes everyone’s shock at the result proves Scottish football doesn’t market itself properly. The Lions travel to Tannadice tomorrow to face a United side buoyant from a brilliant performance as they defeated the Dutch visitors 1-0 in Thursday’s Europa Conference League clash. Martindale, who attended the game, heaped praise on United, saying: “I thought Dundee United’s big players really performed. “Steven Fletcher led the line, Charlie Mulgrew was different class, Dylan Levitt was good on the ball and wee Sibbs (Craig Sibbald) did well. “I probably expected a bit more more Alkmaar but let’s give United credit for nullifying their game. “We do ourselves an injustice. On the radio they said it was a huge result. I think we are negative about Scottish football at times. United were very good in the game. “Why did I expect more from Alkmaar, is it the marketing? I don’t know Alkmaar, so why did I expect more? It comes from our perception and the information we believe.” Read More Related Articles Livingston defender could miss entire season following knee injury He added: “We are good at talking ourselves down and we don’t market ourselves well and that game highlights that. We aren’t the best at talking up our game. “If Livingston v Dundee United was on one channel and Manchester United against Manchester City was on another, it is like two different planets.

But he insists that doesn’t mean they can turn up expecting to take points. He said: “We need to try to take advantage of them playing on Thursday and then next Thursday.

No.” Read More Related Articles Livingston apologise for Rangers ticketing own goal and vow to learn from error Don't miss the latest news from the West Lothian Courier.
