Osman Sow happy to wait for his chance at Dundee United

Dundee United victories are all that matters for Osman Sow as he continues to build match fitness with a view to making a first start for his new club.

The deadline day signing has come off the bench three times so far, with all three matches ending up as wins for the Tangerines.

Nicky Clark and Pavol Safranko have both been performing well from the start – and scoring goals – and you won’t hear any moans from the former Hearts and MK Dons forward.

“Pavol and Nicky are scoring but, at the end of the day, it is a team sport,” said Sow.

“If they score I am happy and if we keep winning I am happier.

“I just have to be patient and enjoy being part of this team.

“In the last year I haven’t played a lot of football so now I’m just enjoying training and being part of the team.

New Dundee United signing Osman Sow warms up ahead of kick-off.

“I played for a month or so at MK Dons before I came here but it’s all good.

“I am feeling better and better every day. Every day is a step in the right direction and I just need to play more football.

“I am happy as long as we keep winning.

“I’ll see what happens for the Falkirk game but the most important thing is we keep winning and the time will come for me to play my part.”

Being reunited with Robbie Neilson should help bring out the best in Sow who, at 28, is now in his peak football years.

He said: “I enjoy working with him and Dundee United are a good club who deserve to be in the top division.

Morton’s Dylan Dykes (R) battles with Dundee United’s Osman Sow.

“It’s about taking every day at a time and trying to get to where we want to be.

“I enjoy the manager’s way of working and his football. I believe in what he is doing.

“It gives me confidence that he has signed me and I’m trying to give back to him.”

Winning at Queen of the South was an impressive result for a title contender and the same would be true if three points can be picked up at Falkirk.

“At the end of the day, getting the points is all that matters,” said Sow.

“Palmerston is a tough place to go to but we managed to see the game out.

“Everybody is happy. It’s all about winning games. It’s difficult to win any league, wherever you are. It’s about not getting ahead of yourselves.

“We need to train well every day and then win on a Saturday.”
