When one door is closed, another is opened. Robbie Neilson is the man charged with the responsibility of guiding the good ship Dundee United through the current stormy waters of two defeats on the spin and he should have a strong squad to pick from as Sam Stanton, Fraser Fyvie, Billy King, Callum Booth and Nicky Clark all continue their return to full match fitness. For all United players, there is the added incentive of showcasing their own merits for the new Head Coach, so it isn't unfair to expect a high-tempo performance.
Partick Thistle comes into the game looking for a new Manager after Alan Archibald suffered for what has been a poor start to the season for Partick as they attempt to bounce back into the Premiership at the first time of asking. Blair Spittal has been in a rich vein of form for the Jags recently and, of course, Arabs know all about his exploits from his time here at Tannadice. Blair is one of several ex-United men in the Thistle ranks including Cammy Bell, Craig Slater, Chris Erskine and the Spittal as mentioned above. Loanee Tam Scobbie will not feature for obvious reasons, and Thistle will be hoping for a spark from new signing Souleymane Coulibaly who has finally been granted permission to play for his new employers.
