Match preview

Can Dundee United continue their push towards European football?

On Saturday, Marc McNulty's fourth minute penalty helped the Tangerines hold Aberdeen to a 1-1 draw at Pittodrie; Ryan Edwards with an own goal shortly after.

This means Tam Courts' side have only lost once since Christmas Day, a last-gasp defeat at Parkhead, but have drawn four of their last five.

Nevertheless, the Arabs sit fifth in the Premiership table which could see them return to Europe for the first time in a decade.

Will their decent form continue?

Livingston meanwhile are also eyeing a place in the top six with the split just five games away.

Livi hammered Dundee 4-0 at Dens Park on Saturday with Bruce Anderson bagging a brace while Scott Pittman and Jack Fitzwater were also on target.

This is the first time the Lions have scored 4+ in a Premiership game since 25 January 2020 against Hamilton Accies.

As a result, David Martindale's men have taken eight points from their last four games, beating Aberdeen before draws with Ross County and St Mirren.

So, Livingston are now seventh, a whopping 11 points clear of danger, and just a point behind Hibs in fourth.

Who will win an important game at the Tony Macaroni Arena?

Polish goalkeeper Max Stryjek continues to impress for Livi having now kept 13 clean sheets this season.

But, it was the other end of the pitch where they shone on Saturday with Bruce Anderson's brace taking his tally to 11 in the Premiership.

He'll continue to form a dangerous front three, alongside Alan Forrest and Joel Nouble with young American Sebastian Soto on the bench.

Nevertheless, he'll continue alongside Mark McNulty in attack with Nicky Clark missing out.

At the back, Charlie Mulgrew and captain Ryan Edwards are alongside 21 year old Ross Graham who scored against Rangers ten days ago.
