Terrors looking to build

 Terrors looking to build

Having fought back superbly at Inverness Caledonian Thistle last time out, Dundee United look to continue in the same fashion when visiting Kilmarnock this weekend.

Manager Peter Houston was reporting no fresh injury concerns for the trip to Ayrshire and his side should certainly be in good heart after a couple of Johnny Russell goals made all the difference at the Caledonian Stadium.

The Terrors can even overtake their latest opponents in the table if they manage a repeat performance and could actually rise as high as fifth depending on what happens elsewhere.

"Last week showed we've got some great spirit at the club, 2-0 down away at Inverness, which is a really hard place to go, and we came away with three points, ending the game really positively," coach Gary Kirk told

"We're looking forward to the weekend. Kilmarnock games have always been close, both down there and at Tannadice. We go there in good spirits and we've got a wee bit of form behind us."

Killie midfielders Danny Buijs and David Silva are both missing while striker Paul Heffernan is rated doubtful.

But in more positive news for the hosts, Mahamoudo Sissoko should overcome a slight knock in time to feature.
