Dundee United v Hibernian

Three successive defeats have certainly proved a setback for the Arabs over the past fortnight, but they will be hopeful of turning things around when Hibernian visit Tannadice this weekend. Manager Peter Houston has bemoaned plenty of bad luck as his side have been hit by more injuries, own goals and a couple of late winners against them of late. Opponents Hibernian will be under the stewardship of their recently-appointed manager Colin Calderwood.

Vital Quotes:

"We're not getting any luck at the moment," Dundee United manager Peter Houston told The Scotsman. "Look at last Saturday's Motherwell game. We scored two own goals. We've been losing goals late on in games in unfortunate circumstances and minor mistakes are being punished. But I've told the boys it will turn again for us. We'll soon start getting the break of the ball again if we continue to work hard."

"A team of that [Dundee United's] level you don`t often see that run of defeats, so it`s got to be a slight advantage," Hibernian manager Colin Calderwood told the Glasgow Evening Times. "But they look a good group of professional footballers, I`m quite impressed with what I see with them. If you`re above United, you`ll definitely be in the top six come the end of the season."

Dundee United Team News:
