Tangerines target second

Dundee United can put further pressure on second-placed Aberdeen with a victory at Pittodrie this weekend.

But the visitors would have to achieve that without top scorer Nadir Ciftci and recent Scottish cap Andrew Robertson, both through suspension. Also currently unavailable in on loan Newcastle United centre-back Curtis Good.

The Tangerines could move within two points of their latest opponents and with a better goal-difference, although still having played a game more.

"It would be a big lift for us if we were able to get a win over Aberdeen," manager Jackie McNamara told BBC Scotland. "It's at that stage of the season when things are quite tight and a win can make all the difference.

"We've said all along that we wouldn't give up hope of making second place as long as it was mathematically possible. That has never changed," he continued. "We know there's obviously still a chance and that's what we'll aim for in the next few weeks."

Andrew Considine is suspended for the Dons after being sent-off against Ross County in midweek. Jonny Hayes is also unavailable but Peter Pawlett could return from a hip injury.
