Stenhousemuir vs Dundee United Match Preview
Dundee United play their first away match against Stenhousemuir for almost 47 years, trying to boost their chances of qualifying for the knockout phase of the Scottish League Cup.
These clubs have not been in the same league division since 1959-60 and after the following season, when they were pooled together in a League Cup group such as this one, they have been drawn to meet each other only once more subsequently before this term.
A maximum of two clubs from each group can advance to the last 16 of the League Cup and the two favourites to do so in Group A are Hearts and Dundee United, who met in the opening match of the 2019-20 Scottish season on Friday and drew 1-1 in Edinburgh before the Jam Tarts gained the bonus point by winning the ensuing penalty shootout.
Along with Stenhousemuir, the other teams in this pool are East Fife and Cowdenbeath. The latter duo faced each other on Saturday, so this is the first game of the campaign for Stenny who are in the bottom tier of the Scottish League along with Cowdenbeath, one division below East Fife.
Stenhousemuir, nicknamed the Warriors, were relegated last term after losing a play-off but are among the favourites to bounce straight back up.
There is likely to be a significant gulf in quality between them and Dundee United, however, and it is difficult to see past an away win.
