Dunfermline vs Dundee United

, KO: 19:45 Mar 15, 2024, East End Park
Dundee United

DUNDEE UNITED continue to just about lead the way in their quest to return to the Premiership, but it's been a slog in the Championship.

And they face another potentially tricky game on Friday night in Fife against Dunfermline.

Jim Goodwin's men continue to set the pace in the second tier, although they've never been able to shake off the challenge of Raith Rovers.

And they have a very bad habit of throwing in the occasional stinker, as they showed the other week when they lost at Tannadice to Airdrie.

On their day, United should stroll to the title with the experienced players in their squad such as Tony Watt, Louis Moult, Glenn Middleton, Craig Sibbald and Declan Gallagher.

And they have at least shown signs of returning to their best after wins to nil against Morton and Arbroath.

The Pars face a real struggle to retain their Championship status after an injury hit campaign. In an incredibly tight league, they are one point above the relegation play-off zone, but just five points behind the promotion play-off spots.

After going nine games without a win, they beat Partick Thistle and Ayr United, but have gone back to their old ways after losing to Airdrie and rivals Raith Rovers.

How the bookies view it

Dundee United are odds-on across the board here at 8/13 with McBookie.com.

Recent head to heads

United have twice been held to a draw by Dunfermline at home matches, but edged a 2-1 win at East End Park on another televised Friday night game in November.

Players to watch

Chris Kane joined on loan from St Johnstone and has improved the Pars with his hold-up play. He scored his first goal for the club the other week against Ayr and is 4/1 to score anytime with bet365.

Tony Watt is in fine form for United and the far-travelled hitman scored his 12th goal of the season with a double against Arbroath last week. He is 23/10 to score anytime with Paddy Power.

Anything else catch the eye?

Dundee United's depth of squad should be too much for Dunfermline here and they can cover a one-goal handicap to win by at least two at 9/5 with Paddy Power.

They will be backed by a big support and took their chances the other week against Arbroath. Dunfermline have struggled defensively.

All four of Dunfermline's last four games and three out of four of United's last four games have seen only one team score. So go for Both teams to score: No at 4/5 with UniBet.
