View from the Dressing Room: Manager Stevie Aitken knows that the Dundee United game could prove to be the pivotal game in the 16/17 season. He said : “We have an opportunity tomorrow, no doubt, but Dundee United are in the play-off zone and are looking to finish second which is a huge incentive for them. We are under no illusions of the task in front of us.”
Team News: With no suspensions or major injury worries, manager Aitken has a full squad to choose from, minus long term absentee Grant Gallagher.
