Big weekend ahead

Big weekend ahead

Assistant boss Simon Donnelly has described their weekend Scottish Cup tie with St Mirren as one of Dundee United's most important games this season.

The Tangerines reached the semi-final of the competition last season but are currently seven games without a win following their weekend draw against Partick Thistle.

"We were disappointed we didn`t get the win on Saturday but we have just got to put it behind us now and look to the cup game on Sunday," Donnelly told the Dundee Courier. "It is a big one for us and hopefully we can win it and then kick on.

"Last season when we first came in we were fortunate to reach the semi-finals and for everybody connected with the club it gives you a boost away from the league stuff," he added. "It can also be good financially but the punters want to see cup runs and going as far as you can."
