Dundee United haven’t enjoyed the success which they had hoped for in the Championship this season, given that their ultimate aim was a swift return back to the Scottish Premiership via the automatic promotion place. Nevertheless they have still enjoyed a decent enough campaign and now sit just two games away from a return to the top-flight once again, however can they give themselves a first-leg advantage when they welcome Hamilton Academical to Tannadice on Thursday in their two-legged play-off?

Ray McInnon’s side finished the season in third position in the Scottish Championship, however they enjoyed some excellent form towards the end of their campaign with a seven-game unbeaten run prior to their 5-1 aggregate win over Greenock Morton in their first play-off tie. They followed this by despatching Falkirk to the tune of 4-3, however they will face their hardest challenge yet when they lock horns with Premiership side Hamilton Academical on Thursday evening.

For their part, Accies have struggled in the Scottish top-flight this season and finished the campaign with just a single point separating them from relegated Inverness Caledonian Thistle. Their regular season was concluded with an impressive 4-0 thrashing of Dundee last weekend however and we would imagine that the visitors to Tannadice this week will be brimming with confidence.

Is that confidence misplaced? This will certainly be a closely-fought match but one shouldn’t forget United’s form at Tannadice this season. The Tangerines have lost just once on home soil this season – this being against champions Hibernian – and whilst Accies have shown signs of improvement towards the end of the season, we believe that the hosts will gain an advantage ahead of the second-leg at New Douglas Park.
