Double boost for Tangerines

Double boost for Tangerines

Dundee United may be able to call upon key duo Danny Swanson and Garry Kenneth for their Europa League second-leg showdown with Slask Wroclaw on Thursday.

The duo sat out last week's 1-0 defeat in Poland but Kenneth is now back in full training while Swanson managed a brief half-hour in the weekend friendly against Cowdenbeath.

"It would be great to have them involved, even if it was just coming on for 20 minutes or so in Danny's case," manager Peter Houston told the Daily Record. "He can give us a spark and the fans always get a lift when he's in the team. But we'll have to wait and see how they react to training."

The Tangerines narrowly trail in the tie overall to Johan Voskamp's late winner from the opening game but Houston knows there is still everything to play for.

"Slask are a quality side and don't have to score so they will sit tight again," he added. "They're a counter-attacking team so it might suit them coming across here.

"But it's only half-time in the tie at 1-0 and it's all to play for. We need to score but we'll have 90 minutes to do that and we'll have to show patience."
