United bid to rediscover form

United bid to rediscover form

Dundee United really need to get themselves back on track as they welcome Hibernian to Tannadice on Sunday afternoon.

Three successive defeats have seen the Tangerines slipping back down to fifth in the table while conceding nine goals in the process.

However, Keith Watson and Calum Butcher both return from suspension after their respective dismissals against St Mirren and St Johnstone.

"It doesn't get any easier. Hibs are a massive club with good players," United midfielder John Rankin told BBC Scotland. "They are coming off the back of a derby win and have now grabbed the bragging rights for the city.

"But if we can get back to the standards and tempo that we have set before the last three games then there is no reason why we can't get the three points," he added. "If we can go on a similar run to the one we've just had, we can get back up the league again."

Former United midfielder Scott Robertson hopes to recover from a calf muscle injury in time to feature for the visitors while striker Paul Heffernan has shaken off a thigh problem.
