Defeat has no bearing

Defeat has no bearing

Dundee United defender Tam Scobbie says last weekend's shock cup exit has absolutely no bearing on their meeting with Falkirk.

The Tangerines sent out a much-changed side against Northern Irish visitors Crusaders in the Irn-Bru Cup, and the current holders of the trophy promptly crashed out of the competition following a late 2-1 defeat.

"Last weekend's game isn't a factor at all. You just have to look at the team we played against them," Scobbie told the Dundee Courier. "The gaffer decided to have a look at a few of the players who hadn't been playing and gave some of the younger ones a chance to show what they can do.

"Judging us on the St Mirren and Dumbarton games is more appropriate because we showed then what we are all about," he added. "We won both of those games well and could have scored more goals. So it's about trying to build on those performances rather than make up for losing in the cup with a changed team."
