Striker blow for United

Striker blow for United

Dundee United are in the capital and facing lowly Hibernian at Easter Road this weekend.

But the visitors will be without their on loan striker Milos Lacny after tearing his cruciate ligament. The Slovakian only joined United from Sparta Prague in January and now misses the rest of the season.

"Milos has a partial tear of his cruciate ligament," manager Peter Houston told the Dundee Courier. "He did it in training when we were playing a game. He was just crossing a ball and there was nobody near him.

"He has been for a scan and the doctor has told us he will miss several months," he confirmed. "There is not a definite timescale on it but he won't play again this season and it will be after the summer break before he gets back. It is a shame for him because he has come over here to sign from us and has had to be patient."

In better news forwards Gary Mackay-Steven (shoulder) and Johnny Russell (ankle) should both recover in time.

Hibs are able to include striker Leigh Griffiths despite reports of a training ground disagreement while both Isaiah Osbourne and Ivan Sproule return from suspension.

Defender George Francomb is similarly available after recovering from injury.
