Dundee United vs East Fife Match Preview

Dundee United’s season has started perfectly satisfactorily and they are expected to keep up the good work in their first competitive meeting with East Fife for over 28 years.

The Terrors are in good shape to qualify for the knockout stage of the Scottish League Cup and would really put the pressure on Hearts in the race to finish top of Group A if they move five points clear with victory on Tuesday.

Robbie Neilson’s side landed two consecutive Correct Score bets for us, firstly drawing 1-1 away to Hearts in the very first match of the 2019-20 Scottish season at odds of 7/1 and then winning 2-1 at Stenhousemuir (15/2). We then tipped them to win to nil at home to Cowdenbeath, which they did, albeit 3-0 rather than 2-0 thanks to an 86th-minute goal.

The first priority for United this term will be to gain promotion back to the Premiership after four years away, and they are certainly boosting confidence for that quest with their performances in this competition.

East Fife, meanwhile, are not completely out of the hunt to reach the last 16 as they have also beaten Stenhousemuir, but the team from Methil will know they have always faced an uphill task to finish above the two clubs from divisions higher than them in this pool.

Neilson will be pleased with how his key new striker signing Lawrence Shankland has started the campaign, with two goals in his first three appearances for United, and this is expected to be a comfortable home win that cements the Tangerines’ place at the top of the group table.
