Tangerines back in action against Dons

Dundee United return to action following a three-week absence when Aberdeen arrive at Tannadice this weekend.

The Tangerines had their last fixture at Motherwell postponed due to a power cut in the local area ahead of the recent international break.

Manager Peter Houston will be hoping his side can record their first league win since defeating local rivals Dundee 3-0 in mid-August at the expense of their third-placed visitors.

But they must do so without winger Gary Mackay-Steven, who continues his rehabilitation from recent knee surgery while ex-Rangers defender Gregory Vignal is still short of match fitness.

"The lads are desperate to get going again because it was frustrating to see the Motherwell game go off," Houston told the Dundee Courier. "That's left us with a big gap between the Inverness game and this weekend so we're raring to go.

"The results have not been great so the players are keen to put things right," he added. "We need to get back to doing the correct things, like defending properly. The teams who have scored against us have scored three and four, which is not good enough."

Aberdeen boss Craig Brown is without defender Ryan Jack after he suffered a foot injury while playing for Scotland Under-21.
