Decision close on trialist defender

Dundee United chief Peter Houston is edging closer to a final decision on Lithuanian trialist Irmantas Zelmikas.

The experienced 30-year-old centre-back again appeared for the Arabs during their 5-0 pre-season friendly stroll at Raith Rovers on Tuesday evening.

"We will be up against a team that has just dropped out of the Premiership down south and who will have a lot of players wanting to impress their new manager."
