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

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."
