Dundee United fans are keeping the faith in their team despite missing out on promotion for a third successive season.

The Tannadice faithful have already bought over 3,000 season tickets with two months to go before the new campaign kicks off.

That represents a 15% increase on the same stage last summer and will be an encouraging sign for manager Robbie Neilson as he prepares for pre-season training.

United, whose summer work will be done at their St Andrews training base rather than abroad, will play away friendlies against East Fife (June 29), Brechin City (July 5) and Dumbarton (July 6).
