Dundee United Match Preview

After two home games in the Championship, we are back on the road this weekend as we head to Tayside to face Dundee United.

The games are usually close encounters between us. They took the honours earlier in the season with a two - one win in our first home game of the campaign back in August. With us winning by the odd goal in five on our last visit to Tannadice in March when Joe Thomson scored either side of Kyle Jacobs penalty.

Queens boss Gary Naysmith is looking for the team to bounce back from Tuesday's disappointment of losing at home to Morton.

"I still can't believe we lost the game on Tuesday, the boys gave everything, it is bad enough that we didn't get a draw but to have lost the game is unbelievable. We dominated the game and I can't fault the players for their effort. We were the team that did all the pushing, we maybe didn't create a lot of clear cut chances but there is no doubt that we played well.

Credit to Morton they came down and sat in and defended really well. Where we are disappointed is that we conceded two set plays, they didn't have a chance from open play, so for the effort the boys gave, I can't even say we should've had at least a point, we should've won the game.

It was one of those games where we didn't get what we deserved, it is tough and hard to take but that's football and we have to move on.

We now head up to Tannadice for yet another tough encounter. Due to the injuries we have just now it's hard for us to make many changes, so it's been important that the players have spent the past few days recovering properly.

It is a tough game, there is no doubt that they have had a lift in recent weeks under Robbie Neilson, they have players coming back into the side and look as though they are enjoying their football again, but since I have been manager at Queens we generally have played well at Tannadice and usually score goals. We have proven in the past that we can get a result there so we will be going all out to do the same again.

Gary Harkins hasn't fully recovered from his hamstring injury, nor Adam Frizzell from his twisted ankle, hopefully they will be back amongst things next week but are still unavailable for this one".
