Experienced striker Scott McDonald is understandably happy to get back to his more favoured attacking role.

The 34-year-old veteran has actually been playing in a deeper position over recent weeks, although he once again managed to find the net during the weekend 2-0 victory against Livingston.

McDonald has still accumulated fifteen goals in 38 appearances for United so far this season – and will be key during their forthcoming play-off games.

“I enjoyed playing up front again on Saturday,” he told the Daily Record. “It’s where I do my best work. I’m a centre-forward aren’t I?

“There’s competition for places but if you look at the second half of this season, I’ve played up front not even a handful of times. Ideally though I like to play up front and score goals. I’ve done that all my life.”

Indeed, Australian international McDonald already has in excess of two-hundred senior career goals while also including spells at Celtic, Middlesbrough, Millwall and Motherwell.
