Dundee United v Inverness CT

Four successive league victories have hoisted Dundee United up into fourth place in the SPL table. And the Taysiders will be bidding to make it five when facing the club where they actually started that run at the beginning of the month, Inverness Caledonian Thistle, who exited the Scottish Cup at the quarter-final stage in midweek with a home defeat to Celtic. After overcoming Caley 2-0 in front of their own supporters, the Tangerines have since gone on to see-off Aberdeen (3-1), Hamilton Academical (2-1) and most recently Hearts (2-0) at Tannadice.

Vital Quotes:

"Inverness are a free-flowing side on their day, as we found to our cost earlier in the season," Dundee United manager Peter Houston told BBC Scotland. "They hit top form that day while we were well below par, so we don't need any reminding of what they're capable of. I'm going to give our lads a few days off next week ahead of the Scottish Cup replay at Motherwell. It would mean a well-earned rest for all they've been through and I don't think anyone could begrudge them that. In the meantime, I'm asking them for one big push in the Inverness game and then they can enjoy a bit of a break."

"The manner we lost against Celtic was really disappointing, but there were so many positives to come out of it," Inverness chief Terry Butcher told BBC Scotland. "The players know what they have to do, playing four teams above us before the split. United have done a fantastic job in picking themselves up and are now pushing Hearts for third place. They are one of the best teams in Scotland so it's no surprise."
