Ray will give his in-form men nod

Evening Telegraph (First Edition) - - Uk World Today -

RAY McKin­non is odds-on to re­vert to the team that ex­celled a fort­night ago when Dundee United’s Cham­pi­onship cam­paign re­sumes at Liv­ingston to­mor­row.

While oth­ers are push­ing hard for re­calls, the XI who chalked up the 3-1 win at Dun­fermline in the last league out­ing look set to get the nod.

That would mean club cap­tain Willo Flood be­ing used at right-back af­ter be­ing drafted in be­cause Stewart Mur­doch and Lewis Tosh­ney were un­avail­able at East End Park.

Mur­doch and Sam Stan­ton both im­pressed in the Irn-Bru Cup win over Linfield and are likely to be on the bench.

“There are those who are play­ing very well who might not get in the start­ing line-up. It’s hard on them but for me i t ’s a n i c e prob­lem to have,” said Ray.

“The ones who’ve been in the team have done well but they know they have to keep that go­ing be­cause oth­ers are ready to come in if stan­dards slip.”

To­day, re­turn­ing pair Tam Scob­bie and Paul Quinn were given a run-out in a closed-door game against Rangers.

The Tan­ger­ines’ Irn-Bru Cup quar­ter-fi­nal against North­ern Ir­ish side Cru­saders will go ahead on Satur­day, Novem­ber 11 at 3pm. The league visit of Falkirk that had to be post­poned to ac­com­mo­date that will go ahead on Sun­day, Novem­ber 19, with a 3pm kick-off.

Mean­while, ex-United kid Jor­dan Gar­den has joined Cow­den­beath.
