Dundee United full-back Liam Smith urges the players to get Tannadice ‘rocking’ for the tie against Queen of the South, as they look to keep their 100% home record.
Last week’s derby victory made it four wins on the bounce, for the Arabs.
Smith said: “Having 7,000 fans turn up every Saturday, if we get them on our side and get the place rocking, it gives us a massive advantage and makes it difficult for the other team.
“We have won every game there so far, so it’s already difficult for teams to come to Tannadice but, if the fans are on our side, it only adds to that.
“We know if we get the first goal and give the whole place a lift we can go on and get two or three.
“It’s been really enjoyable playing at Tannadice at the moment and we need to keep that going.”
Smith is focused on keeping the performances coming – after coming out on top against rivals Dundee with 2-0 win.
He added: “The place is buzzing this week, not just from the win at Dundee but the run of results we’ve had.
“Confidence is high and there’s a good mood around the place.
“It was a good weekend – the derby win kicked it off and then the results last Saturday went our way.
“It was good to see but we are concentrating on ourselves because we know, if we keep winning games, teams need to catch us and we put pressure on them.
“It is three points at the end of the day but winning tomorrow will open up a gap for us.
“That then puts more pressure on the teams below us to up the pace. We do only concentrate on ourselves but the bigger the gap the better.”
