No extension for striker

No extension for striker

Dundee United chairman Stephen Thompson has confirmed striker David Goodwillie won't be having his loan from Blackburn Rovers extended.

The 24-year-old has scored six times in 22 games since returning to the club in July. He previously netted 40 goals in 136 appearances until securing a £2m move to Blackburn in August 2011.

"We haven't extended it," Thompson told BBC Radio Scotland. "It's up to David where he goes from there. I don't think it was necessarily to do with the budget, it's much to do with what he's done since he came back, it's been a bit of a disappointment.

"Jackie [McNamara] and I will have a chat about what we want to do with the team," Thompson continued. "He's in no rush, as such, to just bring anybody in. There may be another player in, certainly before the window shuts, and we're not looking to put anybody out in the transfer window."

Weekend match-winner Scott McDonald felt manager Ray McKinnon was fully entitled to blast his players during the narrow victory against Brechin City.

Dundee United remain hopeful that midfielder Scott Fraser's foot injury isn't too serious.

Dundee United 1 Brechin City 0

Striker Scott McDonald scored a vital late winner to keep Dundee United firmly setting the pace at the top of the Championship.

The Tangerines included Scott Fraser for the suspended Paul McMullan and his curled effort after moving inside was denied by goalkeeper Graeme Smith.

Both James Keatings and McDonald also threatened for hosts seeking a third consecutive league victory having previously accounted for Inverness CT and Queen of the South.

The visitors were then close
