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

Tangerines look to top Caley

Dundee United welcome high-flying second-placed club Inverness Caledonian Thistle to Tannadice this weekend.

Defender Sean Dillon remains doubtful for the hosts with the thigh injury that has kept him out of recent games.

In his likely absence Gavin Gunning and Brian McLean will continue in the centre of defence for the Taysiders, who are aiming to build upon last weekend's convincing win at neighbours Dundee.

"We have to be like we have in the last couple of games and get a clean sheet at least," manager Peter Houston told BBC Scotland. "But we know Inverness will not come down to sit behind the ball.

"They will come to try and win the game and it's only a couple of seasons ago that they came and scored four against us here," he warned. "We have had bad days against Inverness in the past couple of years but we have had good days as well and hopefully Saturday we can make sure it's a good day."

Scottish Under-21 international midfielder Nick Ross could earn a full recall for the visitors after making his return as a substitute in their midweek Scottish Cup win against Ross County.

But a knee injury still keeps defender Chris Hogg out of contention as his side look to narrow the current three-point gap on title favourites Celtic.
