Dundee United vs. Rangers

Tannadice

Sun 5.11.2006

2pm (LIVE on Setanta)

Rangers match preview

Dundee United welcome Rangers to Tannadice Park for Craig Levein's first game in charge of the Arabs.

Rock bottom of the SPL, United are in need of a victory to boost the confidence and hopefully left them off the foot of the table.

It's a tough first game for Levein, any game against the Old Firm is always tough but at least we can see what Levein is made of and we will see if he can motivate the players.

Rangers will be boosted by their UEFA Cup win against Maccabi Haifa on Thursday but the league form has been poor and in recent years, Dundee United have had a good record against them in the league.

The first meeting of the two sides came back in August and it was a thriller. United took a shock 2-0 lead at Ibrox but Paul le Guen's men battled back to draw 2-2.

This is bound to be an interesting game and if you can't make it along to Tannadice then you can watch it live on Setanta Sports.

Dundee United Team News:

The man Rangers fans love to hate - Noel Whelan is out of the game due to suspension but he is likely to be replaced by Colin Samuel who has recovered from a hamstring injury.

Midfielder Stuart Duff has also recovered from injury, he had tendinitis in his knee.

Player to watch: David Goodwillie

The young striker is coming on leaps and bounds and if selected will no doubt cause the Rangers defence some problems.

Rangers Team News:

One time Dundee United target Allan McGregor looks certain to continue in goals for Rangers with Lionel Letizi suffering from a back injury.

Barry Ferguson looks likely to recover from a rib injury suffered during his team's 2-0 victory over Maccabi Haifa on Thursday.

Player to watch: Nacho Novo

The ex Dundee striker has been on fine form recently as he made his return to the top team.
