Dundee United 1-1 Ross County: Watch video highlights from the SPL
Tangerines dismal home run continues as Ross County claim a draw at Tannadice.
Dundee United's hopes of ending their home hoodoo were dashed late on by plucky Ross County in a hard-fought Clydesdale Bank Premier League match at Tannadice.
Peter Houston's side looked set to clinch full SPL points at home for the first time in 11 games thanks to Gary Mackay-Steven's fine second-half strike which was all that separated the sides until the Highlanders struck in 82 minutes through Richard Brittain's brilliant equaliser.
It was a fare share of the points all-round but a better point for the second-bottom visitors in their efforts to stay up although United's consolation was the fact they still moved up a place into sixth on goal difference.
Dundee United's second half pressure paid off after 52 minutes when Mackay-Steven made it 1-0 with an impressive curling left-foot shot which sailed outwith the reach of Dingwall keeper Mark Brown. Skipper Jon Daly released Johnny Russell and he laid the ball back for Mackay-Steven to finish in style from 20 yards.
That gave the hosts a big lift but soon after Cierzniak was called upon to turn Sam Morrow's left-foot shot round the post after Morrow's pass had cut open the home defence. But on 82 minutes Brittain popped up to make it 1-1 with a spectacular strike.
United immediately tried to regain the initiative when substitute Mark Millar let fly from 30-yards but his effort went well wide.
In the final minute, substitute Michael Gardyne tried to snatch it for the Tangerines but his left-foot effort skidded just inches past the target.
