Dundee United Preview – Can United get back to form and end a run of five games without a win?

Due to such an impressive first half of the season Dundee United have been champions-elect for a number of weeks. The Arabs are 18 points clear and despite their opponents on Friday having two games in hand, it would be a catastrophic failure now if they do not go up with something to spare. Robbie Neilson has had a lot of financial backing to build this squad and is doing what was expected.
What the manager will be making known to his players is that the job is not yet done and they still have 12 games to play and will want to wrap up the title as soon as possible.
Our betting prediction:
Dundee United to score in both halves

Bet at William Hill


As it is just now, Dundee United are going through their worst period of the campaign with no wins in their last five matches across all competitions. Granted, two of this games have come against Hibernian in the Scottish Cup but they’ve also taken just two points from their last three league games.
United have also lost their unbeaten home record during that period when going down 1-0 to Arbroath at the beginning of the month. They’ll be looking to put that right here.

Inverness CT Preview – Will Caley bring their good cup form back to league business and boost their playoff hopes?

As seems to be the case every season, John Robertson’s Caley Thistle are performing extremely well in the cup competitions. The Jags’ reached the final of the Challenge Cup (a competition they won back in 2018) and the week before defeated Livingston to move into the quarter-finals of the Scottish Cup. Inverness enjoyed a terrific run in that competition last season, making it all the way to the semi-final.

There’s no doubting Robertson clearly targets the cups but he will also want to ensure his team continue their good league form and secure a playoff spot – just as they did in the previous campaign.

It was Dundee United who put paid to Inverness’ promotion hopes last season when losing in the playoffs. Considering their respective finances then it’s no real surprise and they are going to fall short in their pursuit of them again this season.

Where Inverness fell short last time is finishing in third place which meant an extra two-legged tie in the promotion playoffs. Combining that with all the cup games they were involved in it took it’s toll towards the end of a long, energy-sapping season. The manager will know the importance of finishing second and avoiding that first round.
