Anxious wait over striker

Anxious wait over striker

Dundee United are waiting to discover the extent of striker Brian Graham's injury following their weekend draw at Inverness Caledonian Thistle.

The former Raith Rovers forward was carried off after suffering possible ankle ligament damage as the two sides shared a 1-1 scoreline at the Caledonian Stadium.

"I don't know if the pitch played a part in Brian's injury. It looks a sore one," manager Jackie McNamara told the Dundee Courier. "It wasn't when he landed, it was when he came down and moved his leg again, it moved beneath him. We'll need to wait and see how bad it is."

Meanwhile, McNamara admitted the outcome had always been in doubt after Radoslaw Cierzniak saved a penalty and the visitors twice hit the woodwork.

"It could have gone either way, to be honest," he added. "We hit the post a couple of times and our goalkeeper had a fantastic penalty save. He's had plenty of practice with penalties against him in the last couple of months."

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.
