Hunt Will Continue Where He Left Off

Noel Hunt might be out for several weeks with an ankle injury, but Craig Levein is sure that when he returns in January that he'll continue where he left off - scoring more goals for Dundee United.

The forward injured himself when he landed awkwardly after scoring United's winner in the 3-2 win over Motherwell at Fir Park, and he'll be out for several weeks - missing this weekends visit of Hearts to Tannadice, the Celtic away match and Aberdeen's visit next week.

"Noel will be out for a couple of weeks but when he's back I hope he'll kick on even more," said Levein.

"The eight goals he has scored so far is more than he got with Dunfermline last season so that tells you how he's improving."

"Sometimes when players start improving like that you don't know when they are going to stop."

"It is up to Noel how far he goes in the game. At the moment he is playing well and the team are doing well, but plenty of things can affect that. Primarily the danger is in him thinking he has made it and has become a top-class player, because that is when things start to go wrong."

"True top-class players want to get better all the time. It's a bad time to pick up an injury because he'll miss four game, whereas if it happened during an international week he maybe would have only missed one."

"So because of the timing he is going to miss quite a few fixtures and that is a blow for us because he is in great form."

Let's look on the bright side - it's a good time of year to get injured because when he comes back, a lot of defenders will be tired having played a lot of matches and he'll have chances. So I think the opposite of Levein. And we showed today that we can score against the best teams, at their grounds, with other players!
