Trialist to face Tigers
Dundee United boss Peter Houston is set to again field trialist defender Irmantas Zelmikas in the friendly at Hull City this weekend.
The experienced 30-year-old Lithuanian international has already shown up well in games against Glentoran and Raith Rovers, but Houston was expecting a much bigger test this time around.
"Irmantas will play against Hull and that will give me a much clearer idea of what he's able to do," he told The Courier .
"Hull have got some real quality players and, no disrespect to the other teams we've played recently, this is a different level to what we've seen him at.
"They will be sharp and fit so it's a good chance to have him tested."
