Levein watched his side ease to victory at Fir Park
Dundee United boss Craig Levein was delighted to get back to winning ways with a triumph over Gretna.
"I was pleased with everyone who came in," said Levein, who made five changes for the 3-0 victory at Fir Park.
"It was a massive game for us because we have drawn the last four games, although we should have won every one of them," he said.
"It was beginning to get nerve-wracking for me. So it was good to put on a good performance."
A comfortable win, watched by just 501 fans, was secured thanks to goals from Garry Kenneth, Morgaro Gomis and David Robertson.
Bottom-of-the-league Gretna had beaten United twice this season but rarely threatened as Levein's men moved to a point behind Motherwell in the chase for third spot.
