Scotland Should Go Ginger In Georgia

Scotland Should Go Ginger In Georgia

Ginger-haired Dundee United captain Barry Robson could play some part in Scotland`s Euro Qualifier against Georgia this Wednesday.

Scotland are struggling with injuries and suspensions ahead of the crucial match - with Garry O'Connor and Lee McCulloch suspended after being booked during the 2-1 win over Ukraine at the weekend.

Meanwhile Scott Brown(hamstring), Alan Hutton(calf), Paul Hartley and Gary Caldwell are all available because of injuries.

Even with the news that Darren Fletcher and Graeme Murty have been called-up for Wednesday night, there is still a good chance that 28-year-old Robson could
Make an appearance off the bench.

United manager Craig Levein believes that the influential midfielder has the talent to lead Scotland to victory over Georgia, if only Alex McLeish gives him a chance.

"Barry has the ability and I know Alex McLeish was impressed with the work he was doing in training last week, but I think he will go with Ferguson, Pearson and Fletcher on Wednesday," admitted Levein to Arabzone.

"It`s one of these games where experience is vital and although Barry has plenty of it at club level, you are not talking someone with double figures in international caps and my feeling is that means he`ll be on the bench again."

"If he is I`ll be keeping my fingers crossed for him that he does get on and there has to be a good chance he will."

Final held at Motherwell

Dundee United are to meet St Mirren at Motherwell's Fir Park in the Scottish Challenge Cup final on Saturday 25th March.

Boss pleased to get through

Manager Ray McKinnon was pleased to get through against Queen of the South but not particularly happy with the second-half performance.

Queen of the South 2 Dundee United 3

Dundee United took command of their Challenge Cup semi-final with three first-half goals before hosts Queen of the South staged a late rally.

Charlie Telfer and Scott Fraser both netted inside eleven minutes for the visitors and on loan forward Tony Andreu then added a delightful third.

Stephen Dobbie managed a reply early in the second period and Derek Lyle grabbed another during injury-time - but it's United meeting either St Mirren or The New Saints in the final.
