Dundee United: Tam Courts explains what he is doing with his attack and lays down challenge
Courts admitted those derby displays struck a chord defensively but he is seeking improvements in the final third with fourth spot in their sights when Well visit Tannadice.
"The draw at the weekend put us back into the top six but the challenge for us now is getting back to consistent, winning ways which we were renowned for at the beginning of the season," Courts said.
"We went through a blip during December but we have built up a platform again with wins over Ross County and Kilmarnock.
"Were there things we could have done better in the last few games? Absolutely, there is a lot for us to improve upon.
"The Motherwell game gives us a better opportunity to perform in front of our own fans, something we haven't been able to do for a while.
"We've gone back to being dominant in our own box and that's without the likes of Charlie Mulgrew involved.
"We are striving to add more attacking potency to our play and trying to get a breakthrough having been through a goal drought of late.
"The aim is to return to being the team people remembered us for in the earlier stages of the season. If we can do that then we'll be fine."
