Defender Keith Watson admits Dundee United must be at their best when facing leaders Celtic at Parkhead this evening.

The Tangerines certainly showed plenty of fighting qualities in their last meeting against the current champions when scoring twice during the final ten minutes to rescue a 2-2 draw at the start of November.

“We nicked a draw against Celtic the last time we played them at Tannadice,” Watson told the Dundee Courier. “We didn’t look like doing that but we showed the value of never giving up that day and we have to display that same sort of spirit on Tuesday.

“If we do, we will have a chance. I think that result stung them a bit,” he added. “They probably thought the game was won and switched off a little. They’ll be dying to put that straight by beating us this time.”
