Tangerines chase winning return

Dundee United midfielder John Rankin is determined to get back on the winning trail following a fifth game without a victory at the weekend.

The Tangerines came away from Inverness Caledonian Thistle with a hard-earned 1-1 draw and therefore just a two-point return from their last available fifteen. However, that followed a tremendous sequence of six successive wins.

"The boys are desperate to put a run together again and, although there are a lot of young boys in the squad, they know what they've got to go and do," Rankin told the Dundee Courier. "I don't think it's so much to do with confidence, it's just one of those things.

"It's just a case of needing to roll the sleeves up and kick on, and I'm sure it will come for us," he added. "Hard work pays off in the end."
