Arab Samuel eyes Killie match

Arab Samuel eyes Killie match

Trinidad and Tobago international Collin Samuel will have to convince Dundee United boss Craig Levein that he is 100 per cent fit if he is to start against Kilmarnock on Saturday (Nov 11).

The 25-year-old former Falkirk man played for the first 45 minutes of the 2-1 win over Rangers at Tannadice at the weekend, but he was taken off at half-time due to a tight hamstring.

Levein told the Dundee Evening Telegraph: 'The first thing I need to know is that he is 100%, because I don't want to put him out and have him hurting his hamstring again.

"He did well as a lone striker last week, but it is a hard shift and you need a fully fit player for it. I've also got the option this week of Noel Hunt now that he is back from suspension, so I've something to think about.'

Levein has already said that the Kilmarnock match will be a better indication of the Arabs' potential than the win over Rangers, which was his first match in the hot-seat after replacing Craig Brewster.

Dundee United. The tale of two Craigs. Sure, I'll be moaning soon enough, but for now I'm happy.

You know, it says a lot for the state of Scottish football when a team can get battered up and down the country but, with one fortunate win against Rangers, all the bad things are forgotten...

Levein is right - anything can happen when a new boss takes over, don't forget that you've got exactly the same players as under Brewster.
