Dundee United could turn to youth

Dundee United could turn to youth

Dundee United boss Craig Brewster could turn to his youngsters in an attempt to climb off the bottom of the SPL.

Defender Garry Kenneth, 19, and striker David Goodwillie, 17, could feature against Aberdeen at Pittodrie on Saturday (Oct 21) after impressive Brewster in a reserve outing against Hearts

After seeing his reserves beat Hearts 3-1, Brewster told the Dundee Courier: 'That's the best I've seen Garry play. I've been getting on to him for not being aggressive enough. Against Hearts he was both aggressive and alert. He's still only a kid but has a great physical presence and real potential.'

Goodwillie, who scored in the match and has played for the first-team as a substitute, is 'knocking quite hard on the door,' according to Brewster.

Another player who could make an appearance is new-signing Lee Wilkie, who is attempting to make his third comeback from cruciate ligament problems. However, Brewster seems keen to ensure Wilkie is fully-fit before risking him in the first-team, and may wait for the former Dundee defender to play some more games for the reserves.
