Tangerines looking to bounce straight back

Tangerines looking to bounce straight back

Dundee United travel to face fellow strugglers Dunfermline Athletic at East End Park this weekend, searching for vital points to take them back in the right direction and up the table.

The Tangerines are again without injured trio Sean Dillon, Danny Swanson and Scott Severin, and need to respond in the right way to their surprise midweek Scottish Communities League Cup exit to Falkirk.

"We were expected to beat Dunfermline at Tannadice [in August]. We didn't [losing 1-0]," manager Peter Houston told BBC Scotland. "Anything can happen. I'm quite sure Dunfermline will be thinking along the same lines.

"They might be facing a wounded animal from losing the [Falkirk] match the other night - I hope they are," he continued. "What we have to do is don't feel sorry for ourselves, because we're out of the cup."

Dunfermline also have selection issues ahead of the contest, with Nick Phinn, Andrew Barrowman, Martin Hardie, Kevin Rutkiewicz and Steven Bell already ruled out.

Dundee United are into the Scottish Premiership play-off final after Paul Dixon scored a late winner at Falkirk.

The hosts had moved in front following a 2-2 draw in the first game when James Craigen opened their account on eleven minutes.

But Simon Murray equalised with fourteen minutes remaining, and with extra-time appearing increasingly probable, left-back Dixon headed a dramatic second.

The Tangerines now play either Inverness Caledonian Thistle or Hamilton Academical
