Winner takes all at Tannadice

Winner takes all at Tannadice

There's Friday night action for Dundee United this weekend as Ross County are their visitors to Tannadice (kick-off 7.45pm).

The Tangerines approach the game knowing that victory will send them back to the top of the table, although their opponents are currently level on points with them and doubtless have similar ambitions.

Manager Peter Houston is hopeful that skipper Jon Daly and defender Keith Watson will have recovered from knocks received during the recent derby with St Johnstone.

But latest signing Gregory Vignal won't be yet considered while forward Gary Mackay-Steven is still out following knee surgery.

The Dingwall outfit remain unbeaten in the top-flight following their promotion last season and have so far conceded only one goal.

"County are on great run of form at the moment," Houston told BBC Scotland. "We have watched them on a number of occasions and the word coming back is that they're always very hard to beat.

"I have a lot of respect for what they are doing up there," he added. "They have a great set-up and a good manager and set of players. So the one thing we won't be doing is treating them lightly because they have just come up from the First Division."

Recent arrival Mark Fotheringham isn't yet ready for the visitors who expect midfielder Mark Corcoran to return from a groin strain.
