United bid to end run

United bid to end run

Dundee United travel to take on new SPL leaders Celtic and will be trying to finally end their opponents' long winning sequence this weekend.

The visitors are boosted by the return to action of defender Robbie Neilson but longer-term victims Scott Severin and Danny Swanson are still ruled out.

However, seasoned campaigner Neilson was keenly looking forward to the challenge of in-form Celtic, who have won ten straight league games on their way to the top of the table.

"They're doing well, but it's always an enjoyable place to go," Neilson told BBC Scotland. "Whether they're on a three-game losing streak or a 10-game winning streak, it doesn't really bother us.

"It doesn't really come into our focus at all. It's about going there and us performing at our best," he continued. "We've got some good young players and hopefully on the big stage they'll do well. They will get some space on a big pitch and it will suit their game."

The leaders welcome back forwards Gary Hooper and Kris Commons into their squad. But James Forrest is a doubt following the effects of a recent virus and Mo Bangura is definitely out.
