Another One Bites The Dust...
"And another one gone, and another one gone" - words from the chorus of the well know Queen song "Another One Bites The Dust."
However, the song should now have added meaning for Dundee United manager Craig Levein, after yet another 1st team player joined an ever increasing injury list.
There is now a waiting list for the Tannadice treatment table, as the Dundee United psysio and club doctor work overtime in an attempt to give Levein more options in the playing department.
Ever at this early stage of the season, several long-term injuries mean that United are having to arrange short-term cover for several areas of the squad, with players like Jordan Robertson brought in on-loan from English side Sheffield United.
Dunfermline`s injury problems this season have been well publicised, as the Pars have almost a full team out through injury.
However, Dundee United are also having their own serious injury problems, as another 1st team player limped off this week while playing for the Scotland under-21s side.
20-year-old David Robertson might require a hernia operation, after getting injured during Scotland`s under-21 match against Denmark.
The midfielder now joins a long list of players out of action, which includes Craig Conway(broken foot), Lukasz Zaluska(broken foot), Greg Cameron(hernia) and striker Jon Daly(knee).
