Match Preview

United welcome charity drive Dundee United fans have raised more than B#21,000 in less than two days to help fellow supporters afford tickets to the William Hill Scottish Cup final. Tayside charity United for All launched a fundraising drive after United sold out concession tickets in the first day of sales for the May 17 clash with St Johnstone. United chairman Stephen Thompson this week criticised the Scottish Football Association for its refusal to release more cut-price tickets - set at B#28 for adults and B#10 for concessions - and claimed the decision would mean 20,000 empty seats at Celtic Park. And United fan Dave Mulholland responded with an appeal to help young and old fans buy B#35 tickets - with dozens of football supporters of numerous teams responding. United revealed on Friday they had sold more than 24,000 tickets, with sales in Perth breaking the 14,000 mark. The club have donated B#5,000 to the United for All cause, giving the same amount to a skin cancer charity in recognition of 20-year-old player Jordan Moore's battle against the illness. Director Derek Robertson said: "The club welcome the gesture from United for All and are delighted to be associated with this appeal. "When considering making such a charitable donation, we thought it important to also support a cause which is very pertinent to this club at present and, indeed, in the recent past. We will ask Jordan's parents to choose which particular skin cancer charity they prefer in due course." Meanwhile, United boss Jackie McNamara has warned his side to beware a backlash from Inverness following Caley Thistle's 6-0 defeat at Celtic Park. Ahead of the trip to the Highlands, McNamara said: "John Hughes and his players will be looking to bounce back in a positive way. We know that so we'll have to be on our guard. "Inverness are a decent side with some good players so we will have to play well again if we are going to beat them. "We've told the players that and that's what we'll be going out to do and hopefully get the three points." McNamara believes it will be no problem keeping his players' feet on the ground until the final. He said: "Everyone is talking about the cup final which is what you would expect. It's understandably a big game but there's still a bit of football to be played between now and then. "The boys showed last week when we beat Motherwell 5-1 that they were totally focused. "That's the way you have to be in football, focusing on the next game and the rest will take care of itself. "We will show Inverness respect but go and try to win the game." Inverness midfielder Danny Williams is determined to finish the season strongly. Caley Thistle started off their Scottish Premiership campaign with six wins out of seven, the other game being a draw at Celtic. But they have tailed off amid injuries to captain Richie Foran and the departure of manager Terry Butcher in November. And John Hughes' side are now only a point above sixth-placed St Johnstone following their 6-0 loss at Parkhead on Sunday. Ahead of the visit of Dundee United on Saturday, Williams said: "We want to finish strongly. we started strongly and it would be nice to finish with nine points. "We can beat anyone on our day and we have to put Celtic out of our mind." Williams made one of his 10 starts of the campaign against Celtic and he admits it has not been easy to break into the first team. "It's been difficult because the starting 11 from the beginning of the season have been getting results," said the 26-year-old, who joined Caley Thistle from Kendal Town last summer. "It's been difficult for the subs because we have not had too much of a chance. "I'm happy because when needed I'm playing. We've had a couple of injuries and it has given a few of the lads a start. "The gaffer is trying things that he wants to implement next season. It's important that we finish strongly and put his methods in place."
