Dixon desperate for return journey

Dixon desperate for return journey

Paul Dixon is determined to take Dundee United back to Hampden Park in the Scottish Cup after missing out on their showpiece occasion last season.

A damaged metatarsal left the 24-year-old watching on from the sidelines as the Taysiders defeated Ross County in the final last May.

And with the holders now having fought their way through to a home tie with Motherwell in the quarter-finals this time around, Dixon is desperate for them to go all the way again.

"It's a massive ambition for us to retain the Cup," he told The Scotsman. "Unfortunately, I wasn't involved in the final because of injury but I was definitely there and part of the day. It's an unbelievable feeling to be part of it and hopefully we can be back there.

"I broke my metatarsal and I was doing oxygen treatment to try and get myself back but it was a bit far-fetched to be honest, looking back at it," he added. "But I had to give myself the chance and if it worked, it worked. It didn't but I felt better with myself having given it the chance and not just lying down to it."
