Dundee United's battle to climb back into the Scottish Premiership is proving to be a tough one and with St Mirren enjoying a massive lead at the top of the Championship, the best that the Tangerines can realistically hope for is a play-off place once again. This they achieved in 2016/17 - ultimately to no avail - and they are looking good to repeat this feat at the end of this season, however they face a tough assignment on Tuesday evening when they welcome Queen of the South to Tannadice.
As things stand, Dundee United sit fourth in the Championship table although theirs has been very much a mixed bag of results in recent weeks. Of their last six league outings they have picked up just a single win - this being against rock-bottom side Brechin City - and they desperately need to improve upon this sort of disappointing form should they wish to keep themselves in play-off contention.
Queen of the South will doubtless be harbouring play-off ambitions of their own, however in this regard they are somewhat off the pace with the Doonhamers sitting in the bottom half of what is a pretty tight table. Nevertheless a mere five points separate Queens from Dundee United heading into this match and the visitors will be confident that they will manage something from this trip.
We share their optimism. The Doonhamers have managed some pretty good results on their travels this season with their most notable wins being at Falkirk (4-1), Greenock Morton (2-1) and Dunfermline Athletic (5-2). They can certainly manage something from their evening out on Tayside and whilst we'll be stopping short of predicting an away win on Tuesday evening, a share of the spoils is well within the visitors' grasp this week.
