Count me in - Goodwillie

 Count me in - Goodwillie

Scottish under-21 international striker David Goodwillie is in no mood to be dislodged from the side after forging a promising partnership with Jon Daly last season.

Goodwillie scored thirteen goals in 29 starts last term but is currently readying himself for an expected challenge for his place from the fit-again Francisco Sandaza.

Meanwhile, Andis Shala and Damian Casalinuovo are also sure to be pushing him hard this time around.

"I'm going into the new season looking to maintain the position I had in the second half of last season," Goodwillie told The Courier. "That'll be tough as there is lots of competition for the striking positions. So I'm trying to get myself as fit as possible.

"I want to feel safe in the team and play the full season — that's the aim."

The 21-year-old marksman missed the Arabs' weekend triumph in Oban, but insists that it was only ever a precautionary measure.

"I felt a couple of niggles but nothing serious," he said. "It was just a precautionary thing that I didn't go to Oban," he added.

Boss pleased to get through

Manager Ray McKinnon was pleased to get through against Queen of the South but not particularly happy with the second-half performance.

Queen of the South 2 Dundee United 3

Dundee United took command of their Challenge Cup semi-final with three first-half goals before hosts Queen of the South staged a late rally.

Charlie Telfer and Scott Fraser both netted inside eleven minutes for the visitors and on loan forward Tony Andreu then added a delightful third.

Stephen Dobbie managed a reply early in the second period and Derek Lyle grabbed another during injury-time - but it's United meeting either St Mirren or The New Saints in the final.
