SONS will take on Dundee United in round two of the league cup and boss Ian Murray reckons his team will provide a test for the Tannadice club.

Murray said: “This game will give the players an incentive and something to look forward to.

“We were always likely to get a Premiership side due to the seeding but at least it’s a home draw.

“It’ll be a good test for us and of course United too and I’m sure our fans will be relishing seeing this game at the Bet Butler Stadium with the likes of Scotland internationals Gary Mackay Steven and David Goodwillie on our pitch.

“The game will also give us a gauge of where we are in terms of being ready for the League. There will be a big crowd and it will be good experience for our younger lads”

A firm date for the game is yet to be fixed, but Murray is hoping that of the two available slots (Tues 27th or following day 28th), the match can be played on the Wednesday (28th).

The boss said: “Wednesday is our nominated night for midweek matches but we will need to wait and see what United say.”

Attending today’s draw on behalf of the club was striker Bryan Prunty who had son Liam alongside.
