Fuming United boss McKinnon vows to wield axe on his flops; Dundee Utd.......... . 1 Dumbarton .......... .1.

Byline: Euan McArthur

Ray McKinnon has vowed to wield the axe if Dundee United don't improve.

David Smith got the shock opener for part-time Dumbarton before super sub James Keatings salvaged a point with his free-kick.

United - who lost 3-0 to St Mirren in their last league game - were booed off by fans and boss McKinnon is set to drop his flops if there are any more dire displays. He said: "I'm frustrated. Lots of performances really need to be improve. If players don't they'll find themselves out of the team."

Stewart Murdoch lost possession to Tom Walsh whose deep cross eluded the United defence allowing Smith to nip in at the far post and prod in an early opener.

United threw on Dutch striker Patrick N'Koyi for Sam Stanton after the break but it was Dimitris Froxylias who almost scored for Sons.

Then United got the equaliser with 12 minutes left after David Wilson brought down King on the edge of the box and Keatings stepped up to curl a left-foot effort into Scott Gallacher's top corner.

Sons boss Stevie Aitken said: "It was just tiredness that denied us victory."
