Blow for Dundee United as big two set to miss out

Blow for Dundee United as big two set to miss out

It’s looking increasingly likely Dundee United will be dealt a double selection blow as they try to save their season at Livingston on Friday.

Skipper Willo Flood is definitely out because of the red card he received as the Tangerines went down to Livi at Tannadice on Monday.

And key man Bilel Mohsni also looks set to miss out because of the groin injury he picked up right at the end of that morale-sapping 3-2 play off defeat.

Immediately after the final whistle gaffer Csaba Laszlo expressed his concern the nature of Mohsni’s injury meant the centre-half would not make the four-day turnaround between games.

Two days on the Tunisian international is still struggling to recover.

Given his influence on the defence since he arrived March, his absence would be a major setback.

“I don’t think in this short time he will be recovered but we are a team and we have to show also that we can stand up,” said Csaba.

Mark Durnan is a ready-made replacement for the 30-year-old but problems with an ankle injury mean he hasn’t started a game since the win over champions St Mirren a month ago.

Meanwhile, the first of Flood’s two bookings on Monday means he will miss the start of next season under the totting up process.

Although United have already lost twice a Livingston this season, the manager still believes they can overcome the 3-2 deficit from the first leg.

“It is only one goal and we can win,” added Csaba.

“If a chance comes we must take it, this is important.”

Friday night’s game will be pay-at-the-gate for both sets of supporters.
