Inverness vs. Dundee United

Caledonian Stadium

Inverness v Dundee United

Dundee United are once again on the road when visiting Inverness Caledonian Thistle on Tuesday evening. At the weekend the Terrors required a late Andis Shala equaliser to earn a point at bottom club Hamilton Academical, and will be hoping to go one better against the side immediately above them in the table. Indeed an away victory would take the visitors ahead of their latest opponents, on whom they already have three games in hand.

Vital Quotes:

"It's great the game's come around so quickly - we haven't got time to harp on about the Easter Road defeat, we're now looking at victory on Tuesday," Inverness manager Terry Butcher told BBC Scotland. "It was very disappointing on Saturday considering that we've been in the top six for about six months. It's one we have to forget - we'll heed the lessons - but the most important thing now is what we do on Tuesday. We can get good points against them [United] - and that's our aim."

"We didn't play well but we had some great chances. Billy [Reid] complained last week that his team got a soft penalty against them, but he won't get a softer penalty than that for him," Dundee United manager Peter Houston told the Dundee Courier after the weekend draw at Hamilton. "My players say that their boy took a touch and then went flying, roaring for a penalty. It was very, very soft. I'll complain about it this week and maybe on Tuesday night we might get one. The game was disappointing in many, many ways but I will give credit to the players for battling again right to the end."

Inverness Team News:

Winger Jonny Hayes was again expected to miss out for the hosts because of a foot injury, while David Proctor, Dani Sanchez and Kenny Gillet are also currently unavailable.
Inverness CT (from): Esson, Innes, Duff, Doran, Odhiambo, Foran, Rooney, Munro, Duncan, Tuffey, Sutherland, Hogg, MacDonald, Hayes, Ross, Cox, Tokely, Gillet, Morrison, Golabek

Player to watch: Adam Rooney

An obvious threat with eighteen goals already in 30 appearances this season.

Dundee United Team News:

Dundee United are still without their skipper Jon Daly (hernia) and centre-back Garry Kenneth (knee), in addition to long-term victims Mihael Kovacevic (knee), Darren Dods (knee) and Scott Severin (ankle).
Dundee United (from): Pernis, Dillon, Dixon, Van der Meulen, Watson, Douglas, Swanson, Gomis, Conway, Buaben, Armstrong, S. Robertson, D. Robertson, Conway, Goodwillie, Russell, Banks, Dow, Smith

Player to watch: David Goodwillie

Leading marksman who is certainly due a goal with only one in his last nine games.
