Dundee United v Aberdeen

Dundee United continue to search for their first victory of the campaign when entertaining Aberdeen at Tannadice this weekend. The Arabs are currently one off the bottom of the table, with two draws and one defeat from their opening three games. Aberdeen are faring rather better thus far and presently find themselves in third place and four points ahead of their hosts, although they suffered a surprise home defeat to Kilmarnock in their most recent game.

Vital Quotes:

"They're a good side and they've changed quite a bit from last season, but Mark's always wanted to do that," Dundee United manager Peter Houston told BBC Scotland. "I've seen a lot of them and they were unlucky to lose late to Kilmarnock in the 92nd minute. So we know we're in for a tough game, because games between United and Aberdeen are always difficult. These games mean a lot. Aberdeen always bring a big crowd here and, likewise, we take a good support to Pittodrie. That lends to the atmosphere and the tempo is increased right away and there's a lot of action, lots of nice tackles, good football too and good goals too."

"I saw them against Inverness and they looked very tired," Dons manager Mark McGhee told Aberdeen's official website. "To be honest I discounted that result for them because I did think they looked fatigued. I know they came back and play very well against Hearts after the 2nd Athens game but clearly the first game had had a bigger affect on them. They were excellent against Hearts so that is therefore the Dundee United I expect. I think if we finish above Dundee United this year we will have done really really well this season. I think that we know the challenge of going there."

Dundee United Team News:

Former Aberdeen skipper Scott Severin is likely to be awarded a debut following his recent arrival. But midfielder Danny Swanson is ruled out by injury, although striker Danny Cadamarteri is available.
