Utd can lay new marker in run up to Christ­mas

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

im­me­di­ate lift, while young wide­man Matty Smith also got on but only for the fi­nal few min­utes.

That means it will be a fresh and con­fi­dent side who face the Bairns and, if they se­cure a third Cham­pi­onship win on the bounce, things will be look­ing good for United.

Af­ter it, they fin­ish the month with a trip to Brechin that should yield an­other three points, though noth­ing in this l eague can be taken for granted, then head into a De­cem­ber that will be chal­leng­ing.

It will also pro­vide the op­por­tu­nity to show they are in­deed the top team in the di­vi­sion.

Be­tween fac­ing Brechin to end the month and play­ing them again as New Year vis­i­tors on Jan­uary 2, Las­zlo will lead his team against all the other sides cur­rently sit­ting in the top six.

Emerge from that run with a pos­i­tive points re­turn and it’s hard to imag­ine United will be any­where other than in top spot. It is, though, go­ing to be a time when re­sources will be tested.

Over such a busy sched­ule in­juries are likely to kick in and, at this point of the cam­paign, sus­pen­sions can also have an im­pact.

It’s why the man­ager would have liked to have seen sev­eral of those in­volved on Satur­day show­ing up well and stak­ing a claim for a place in the league team.

With the ex­cep­tion of Fraser Fyvie, none of the fringe men on show did that. It’s why the man­ager was right to be dis­ap­pointed.

Cs­aba Las­zlo saw his fringe men slip up against Cru­saders.
