Defender bids to erase memories

Defender bids to erase memories

Dundee United defender Mark Wilson is desperate to be picked for this month's Scottish Cup final having suffered severe disappointment in his last showpiece appearance for the Tangerines.

The 29-year-old was a member of the United team defeated by a solitary goal by Celtic at Hampden Park nine years ago.

Now back for a second spell at Tannadice following time away with the Glasgow club, Wilson faces a real battle for a starting place with fellow right-back Keith Watson.

"It would be brilliant to play in the cup final," Wilson told the Dundee Courier. "I've been lucky enough to play in a few in my career. But it would be special being back with United because that's where I first got a taste for it.

"It was a disappointing day back in 2005 because we lost and it was raining — I don't look back too fondly on it. But it was still great to get there," he added. "Hopefully this time we'll have a nice sunny day at Celtic Park and we'll take the trophy home with us."
