Captain Robson Faces 4 Match Ban

Captain Robson Faces 4 Match Ban

Dundee United could lose captain Barry Robson for the final 4 games of this season, if the talented midfielder picks up a yellow card in the SPL match against Dunfermline this afternoon.

28-year-old Robson is just one yellow card away from picking up a 4 match suspension, after amassing a large number of disciplinary points from 7 yellow and 2 red cards already this season.

There was suggestions that manager Craig Levein wouldnt risk Robson against struggling Dunfermline at East End Park today, but Robson returned from suspension to take his place in United's starting line-up.

Robson received a straight red card after an off-the-ball clash with Lee Naylor in his sides recent SPL match with Celtic, where a Jon Daly strike levelled the score at 1-1 just moments after captain Robson left the field in the closing stages of the game.

'I'll wait until Saturday morning before I decide whether to play Barry or not,' admitted Levein yesterday.

'We have a few out, Mark Kerr is suspended, Morgaro Gomis is injured and David Robertson has a sore back at the moment.'

'David might still make it so we'll wait and see but if not Barry might have to come back into the reckoning.'

'There are five important games left for these players. We spent a lot of time at the bottom end of the table but I want them to look back on the season from a respectable position.

'More importantly, I want them to develop a winning mentality. I want us to go into every game looking to win, not just getting up for it in the games we need to.'

'Winning matches every week is what good teams do and until we do that we can't consider ourselves to be a good team.'
