United set to sign two

Dundee United should sign former Tottenham Hotspur trainees Calum Butcher and Kudus Oyenuga later this week.

Striker Oyenuga, 20, previously had a loan spell with St Johnstone and along with defender Butcher, 22, has been on trial at Tannadice.

Both of them have agreed deals after playing non-league football for Conference South outfit Hayes & Yeading United last season.

Meanwhile, manager Jackie McNamara still has other trialists to consider, amongst them ex-St Mirren defender Graham Carey.

"There are two areas I would like to strengthen - the centre of defence and possibly left-back, depending on how Graham Carey does," he told BBC Scotland. "Young Andrew Robertson has looked very good in training but he is 19 and ideally I would like two fighting for the position."

Thomas Mikkelsen claimed a second-half equaliser as Dundee United dropped home points in a 1-1 draw with Inverness Caledonian Thistle.

The visitors led at the interval after Iain Vigurs headed in from close-range.

But Danish striker Mikkelsen later deflected Billy King's cross-shot past goalkeeper Mark Ridgers.

Caley's George Oakley should have done better when released early on - but instead allowed on loan Harry Lewis to make a comfortable save.
