Dundee United hope to continue applying pressure on the leaders when visiting Falkirk this weekend.

The Tangerines have significantly added to their options over the past few days with a trio of new signings arriving at Tannadice.

Danish 6′ 3″ striker Emil Sigvardsen Lyng has joined until the end of the season, while defender Brandon Mason [Watford] and midfielder Craig Slater [Colchester United] both come in on loan for a similar duration.

All three newcomers could be involved at Falkirk on Saturday, when United aim to close a three-point gap on current table-toppers St Mirren, who are simultaneously at home to Inverness Caledonian Thistle. The Taysiders also have a single game in hand.

Midfield duo Scott Fraser [fractured foot] and Fraser Fyvie [cruciate ligaments] were recently both ruled out for the rest of the season.

The Bairns appear set to be without Myles Hippolyte and Tony Gallacher, but Joe McKee returns to their squad.
