White hat-trick sends Dundee United bottom and gives Ross County vital win

Jordan White scored a poacher's hat-trick as Ross County beat Dundee United 3-1 in their relegation showdown at Tannadice to climb off the bottom of the cinch Premiership and leave their hosts two points adrift at the foot of the table.

A large and expectant home support had turned out to try and roar their team towards safety while also celebrating the 40th anniversary of their club's only top-flight title win in 1983.

But they endured a demoralising afternoon in the Tayside sunshine as striker White scored in the opening minute and then struck another two in the second half after Jamie McGrath had levelled things up with a penalty midway through the first half.

United boss Jim Goodwin made two changes to the side that started the previous weekend's defeat at St Johnstone as Kieran Freeman and the suspended Charlie Mulgrew made way for Ryan Edwards and 17-year-old striker Rory MacLeod.

There were also two tweaks to the County line-up from their victory over Livingston as Josh Sims and Alex Samuel came in for Keith Watson and Simon Murray.
