Dundee United defender Bilel Mohsni is backing his team to win all of their remaining matches.

The Tangerines made it back-to-back victories for the first time since December 23 when Danish striker Thomas Mikkelsen scored the only goal of the game against Falkirk at Tannadice on Saturday.

United are still in fourth spot in the Championship, just behind third-placed Dunfermline on goal difference but with a game in hand.

Looking further up the table, Csaba Laszlo’s men are now four points behind Livingston, who currently occupy the runners-up spot behind newly-crowned champions St Mirren.

A win over relegated Brechin City at Glebe Park tomorrow night will not only move United three clear of the Pars in third but bring them to within a point of Livi, who visit Tannadice on the final day of the regular season.

The West Lothian men would still be favourites to hang on to second as they would have a game in hand to be played at home to Inverness a week tomorrow, when the Tangerines finally get a free midweek.

Nevertheless, finishing with what would be five consecutive wins will give United a fighting chance.

Asked if he thought they could do that, Mohsni said: “Yes, of course it is possible.

“If we keep playing like this it will be possible.

“We have Livingston at home in the last game so they will have to try to come here and beat us.

“We have to continue to concentrate and try to win every game. We can do that.

“Getting three victories is our goal now because we want to finish second so that we can have a bit of a rest before being ready for the play-offs.”
