Tangerines sign striker

Tangerines sign striker

Dundee United have snapped up Slovakian striker Milos Lacny on a year-long loan from Sparta Prague, subject to international clearance and with an option to buy outright.

The 23-year-old has eight Under-21 caps to his credit and previously underwent a trial with Celtic a couple of years ago. He had most recently been training with the Tannadice club with a view to signing.

Lacny originally joined Czech outfit Sparta from Ruzomberok in January 2010 on a three-year contract but was last year sent out on loan to Slovan Bratislava for six months.

"Milos is a quality young player," United manager Peter Houston told BBC Scotland. "His style is different to the strikers we already have at the club and I think he will quickly become a favourite with our fans.

"He showed a desire to come over here on trial and what I witnessed convinced me that he can play a big part in our squad and gives us greater attacking options," he added. "He will bring pace to our forward line and increases our goal threat. I am absolutely delighted to have secured his services for the next 12 months."

Raith Rovers 2 Dundee United 1

Dundee United's promotion hopes received another major setback with a 2-1 defeat to Raith Rovers at Stark's Park.

Goals either side of the break from Craig Barr and Ryan Hardie gave the visitors too much to do despite Simon Murray's late reply.

Defensive uncertainty already witnessed Hardie being denied by Cammy Bell before Barr opened the scoring when heading in Chris Johnston's free-kick as the interval approached.

That was improved upon when Hardie drove a low second earl
