Defender in doubt

Defender in doubt

Garry Kenneth already looks doubtful for Dundee United's weekend game against St Mirren.

The Scottish international centre-back suffered a groin strain during the opening half of the 5-1 victory at St Johnstone before being replaced by Sean Dillon. And it was appearing increasingly unlikely he would recover in time to face the Buddies at Tannadice on Saturday.

"Garry has a groin problem. We'll see how he is but I would say he's already a big doubt for the St Mirren game this weekend," assistant manager Gary Kirk confirmed to the Dundee Courier. "It's a shame for him but Sean Dillon came on against St Johnstone and did well."

Kirk believes the next few games will prove crucial for United in their search for a European place.

"The next couple of weeks is going to be massive for us," he added. "We have St Mirren and Killie at home then Hearts away so that's three huge games. The results went for us on Saturday, we're back in there now so we'll see what happens."
