Motherwell v Dundee United

Dundee United will be hoping to do much better when visiting Motherwell in the Co-operative Insurance Cup tonight. The two clubs only met at Fir Park in the league at the weekend, when a couple of own goals from the visitors eventually saw them lose out despite another strike from David Goodwillie in their 2-1 defeat.

Vital Quotes:

"It don`t think it`s a good thing to have Dundee United so quickly again," manager Craig Brown told Motherwell's official website. "I think it is unfortunate we are playing them so soon after Saturday`s game. I would be saying that irrespective of the result on Saturday. It`s just difficult playing the same team in quick succession - there is a lack of freshness about the fixture. We have respect for the abilities of Dundee United and the way they play."

"We played really bad on Saturday and lost 2-1. We have to look at our own game. We haven't started two 45 minutes in a row very well," Dundee United manager Peter Houston told BBC Sport. "We have played OK in the second half in both games. What we have to do is get it over 90 again. The players enjoyed the experiences of getting to cup finals and semi-finals last year. Hopefully this year we can get into these positions again. This is a chance to get back to Hampden."

Motherwell Team News:

Motherwell's Keith Lasley is struggling to make the tie due to a hamstring problem, while long-term injury victim Esteban Casagolda is still unavailable.

Match Facts & Stats

Own goals from Scott Severin and Sean Dillon left the Arabs short-changed at the weekend in a very disappointing display in which David Goodwillie at least scored for the fifth consecutive game.
