'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Crank up the volume!

Dundee United manager Peter Houston was calling for the fans to be as loud as possible in what should be a near capacity attendance against AEK Athens at Tannadice on Thursday evening.

The Arabs are certain to receive a hostile reception when they travel to Athens for the second-leg seven days later, and Houston was hoping for the visitors to really get a taste of their own medicine on Tayside this week.

"I urge as many fans as possible to come out and cheer the team on," he told The Courier. "I go back to European nights when I was at Hearts and the atmosphere at Tynecastle definitely helped the players on the night.

"If we can get a full house, with thousands of United fans making some serious noise then it will inspire our boys," Houston added, "They are buzzing about it just now, I can tell that from training.

"One thing our players do is rise to the occasion and you saw that in the Scottish Cup semi-final and final. This is another occasion for them to savour and from what I have seen this week they are raring to go."
