Dundee United boss Ray McKinnon has insisted all attention now shifts to the league and the weekend game at Tannadice against Queen of the South following last night’s Betfred Cup derby defeat against Dundee at Dens.
He said: “Saturday will now be the focus. Of course we want to win that.
“I think they’ll be fine, we are at home after being away for three back-to-back games. It’ll be good to play at Tannadice.
“Dundee a good team with some very good players.
“There has to be a winner and loser but sometimes you just have to accept it.
“I know why we lost and we have to address it but that’s part of life.
“I’m disappointed obviously. We don’t want to go out the cup.
“You just have to accept these things. We’ll get stronger so lots of positives to take out of it.
“Three tough away games is a tough start to the season but their attitude and effort was excellent.”
McKinnon is awaiting news today on defender Tam Scobbie who had to go off against Dundee after just 18 minutes with the manager adding: “Tam has done his groin. We will need to see the extent. It could be a bad one.
“It usually takes 24 hours to assess but he’s in a lot of pain.”
