'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Tangerines must recover well

Dundee United are seeking their first league win in six games when travelling to second-placed Motherwell this weekend.

The visitors will be doing so without full-back Barry Douglas after being allowed to miss the game on compassionate grounds.

Recent signing Gregory Vignal is still working on getting up to proper fitness while winger Gary Mackay-Steven remains on the sidelines.

The Tangerines haven't actually scored in the league since a 3-1 defeat at Kilmarnock six weeks ago, with their only success since being a single-goal League Cup win at Queen of the South.

"We have to try and get back to basics and stop conceding goals because our heads seem to go down once we do," manager Peter Houston told BBC Scotland. "It's fair to say the boys are lacking a bit of confidence just now so it's a case of trying to get that back, hopefully starting at Motherwell."

He added: "We have worked extremely hard on the training pitch all this week trying to become hard to beat again, which is the key to most things in football."

Motherwell welcome back Stevie Hammell from injury but Adam Cummins is suspended and Steven Saunders, Stuart Carswell and Lee Erwin unavailable.
