Houston to make changes

Peter Houston will make changes on Thursday evening for the visit of Hamilton Academical to Tannadice.

That will be the Terrors second game in a busy five-match thirteen-day spell which began last night with a 3-1 win against Aberdeen and continues with the ongoing defence of their Scottish Cup title at home to Motherwell on Sunday.

"We'll have to have a look at it and I think we'll need to use our full squad," Houston told BBC Scotland. "The Cup tie means a lot to us, both on and off the park - financially, but also we want to reach a semi-final.

"We want the points and we need the points to make sure we consolidate in a top-six finish," he added. "I've not got a massive amount of players to change it that much, but certainly we'll have to use in the next couple of days the full squad."
