Promotion everything for boss

Dundee United boss Ray McKinnon is understandably prepared to sacrifice their defence of the Irn-Bru Cup in order to return the club to the Scottish Premiership.

The Tangerines defeated St Mirren in last season's final before then narrowly missing out in their play-off showdown to Hamilton Academical.
