Dundee United should be geared for a playoff charge

Inverness's season is only going one way

It hasn't quite been the season Dundee United fans were hoping for
1 of 1

Dundee United have surely lost all hope of automatic promotion from the Ladbrokes Championship, but they can still go up via the playoffs and they can continue their mini-revival by beating Inverness.

The season has been a write-off for pre-season title favourites United, who have wilted for the second year in a row.

So far, the Csaba Laszlo experiment has flopped, but there were signs in midweek that their recent weather-enforced break may have done them some good when they fought back to win at Queen of the South.

They have a fixture backlog, but can build a head of steam for the playoffs by beating Caley Thistle, who have rapidly gone backwards.

One win in six tells its own story for Inverness and that was in the Challenge Cup against Crusaders from Northern Ireland.

Championship leaders St Mirren should take another step closer to the top flight when they travel to Queen of the South.

Striker Stephen Dobbie is struggling with injury, which would almost be a reason to back the Saints on its own as the Doonhamers rely heavily on the veteran.

Saints should also be boosted with the return of Celtic-bound midfielder Lewis Morgan, who missed last week's win against Dunfermline with tonsillitis.

Despite being a mile clear at the top of the league, bookmakers continue to be generous with prices for the Paisley side who show no signs of letting up.

Normally, backing an away team who have lost their last eight games on their travels would seem a foolish strategy, but Elgin can get the job done against Cowdenbeath.

Elgin seem almost unbeatable at their Borough Briggs home, but have had severe travel sickness.

However, there were signs in their latest away loss in midweek to Clyde that they are improving.

The Blue Brazil, meanwhile, have had a lamentable season on and off the park and are doomed for the pyramid playoffs against the winners of the Highland League and Lowland League.

Cowdenbeath have won one league game all season and that was in August.

They are effectively playing glorified friendlies for the rest of the season while Elgin are going for a promotion playoff spot.
