United travel with high hopes

A trip to the Highlands for Dundee United on Sunday lunchtime as they tackle Invernesss Caledonian Thistle (kick-off 12.45pm).

New on loan striker Farid El Alagui could earn an immediate debut for the visitors as Nadir Ciftci is currently struggling with a groin problem.

But right-back Mark Wilson misses out with a stomach muscle strain while fellow defender Gavin Gunning hopes to recover from a leg injury.

"It would be ideal if we could start as we finished against Hibs and take the game to them," manager Jackie McNamara told BBC Scotland. "We showed good battling qualities against Hibs and in any game you would like to get on the front foot.

"We know this will be a tough game against Inverness but it's one we're relishing for all the right reasons," he added. "They will want to try and get the ball down to play like ourselves so we will have to take our chances when they come our way."

Caley are without suspended midfielder Ross Draper but Marley Watkins has overcome a dead-leg, although skipper Richie Foran and James Vincent remain sidelined.
