NOW EVERY GAME'S LIKE A CUP FINAL.

Byline: EUAN MCARTHUR

LIVI v DUNDEE UTD TONIGHT, 7.45, LIVE ON BBC ALBA TAM SCOBBIE reckons Dundee United are facing 14 cup finals in their bid for a Premiership return - starting tonight at Livingston.

Csaba Laszlo's men know they can ill afford any more slip-ups if they're to overhaul the 14-point gap between themselves and leaders St Mirren.

United are relishing tonight's crunch clash with David Hopkin's second-top shocktroops before hosting Queen of the South and title favourites Saints within the next week.

Stopper Scobbie is set to make a welcome return following a recent spell out with a groin injury.

And he said: "We need to go on a decent run so we're looking at these fixtures as 14 cup finals. That's our mindset.

"The next three games are massive. If we go to Livi and get a positive result it will do wonders for our confidence.

"We've got to get good results against those three teams who are round about us in the league so we can go into the last 10 games or so in a good position.

"The guys know the next three games will be crucial. We all know what we have to do.

"In certain games we just haven't turned up when fans have travelled in their numbers to give us great backing. That's not acceptable.

"But there's still an opportunity for us to do what we set out to achieve at the start of the season which is getting back to the Premiership.

"But we can't let anything else go."

Laszlo wants to give the travelling fans something to shout about and the United boss said: "The supporters have been magnificent since I came to the club. They are so passionate and deserve the best.

"If we can get a win at Livingston it will make them very happy but we know as always we'll need to work very hard to get the three points."
