121215 utd_celeb_002Can Caley Jags maintain United scoring streak?

Caley Thistle aim to hold on to second spot in the SPL table by beating Dundee United at Inverness on Wednesday evening -- having rattled in eight goals against the Tangerines in two clashes already this season.

"We produced a really gritty performance to beat Hearts and we'll need to show the same character against United", says manager Terry Butcher.

Josh Meekings faces a check on the back injury which kept him out of the win over Hearts but young Irishman Danny Devine impressed as deputy at Tynecastle and is on standby for his first home start.

Skipper Richie Foran is on the mend and the question is whether it is in time to face the Tannadice men.

The fixture is all the more attractive for the special offer made by the club in which all season ticket holders can bring along a friend for only £5. (Discount tickets must be purchased at the Club Shop)

United were swept aside 4-0 on their last visit to Tulloch Caledonian Stadium in a sizzling display by Terry Butcher's troops.

Richie Foran opened in 31 minutes and struck again four minutes later then young Philip Roberts made it 3-0 at the interval. Andrew Shinnie stretched the advantage midway through the second half.

At Tannadice on December 15 Caley Jags found themselves 3-0 down after only eight minutes with John Daly, Rudi Skacel and a Josh Meekings own goal getting United off to a flyer.

Back stormed Caley Thistle and a double from Billy McKay made it 3-2 at half time then wee Billy completed his hat-trick in 62 minutes.

Gary Warren's header seemed to have won it for the visitors in 86 minutes but a controversial decision let Daly equalise four minutes into injury time.

United's new manager Jackie MacNamara will be out to make it third time lucky for his team while the hosts are out to complete an unbeaten hat trick.
