Tangerines could be unchanged

Tangerines could be unchanged

Dundee United manager Peter Houston could go with an unchanged side for their Europa League qualifier second-leg at Dynamo Moscow later today (kick-off 5pm).

The Tangerines are seeking to improve upon upon a 2-2 draw between the sides in the opening game at Tannadice last week.

Defender Sean Dillon was expected to recover from the knock that forced his withdrawal during the 3-0 weekend victory against Hibernian.

"At this stage of the tie if we don't score a goal then we're out," Houston told BBC Sport. "So, we have to score. We had a great game last week. Both sides attacked, created chances and scored goals.

"We'll put aside the fact they haven't won a league match yet and know that we have to score," he added. "That's what we're going to try to do."

Dynamo have parted company with manager Sergei Silkin since the first-leg and following their 4-0 weekend defeat to big city rivals Spartak - a result which left them bottom of their own domestic table.

Falkirk 1 Dundee United 2

Dundee United are into the Scottish Premiership play-off final after Paul Dixon scored a late winner at Falkirk.

The hosts had moved in front following a 2-2 draw in the first game when James Craigen opened their account on eleven minutes.

But Simon Murray equalised with fourteen minutes remaining, and with extra-time appearing increasingly probable, left-back Dixon headed a dramatic second.

The Tangerines now play either Inverness Caledonian Thistle or Hamilton Academical
