Ray will give his in-form men nod
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.
