Mellon: ‘We have to take these challenges on’

Dundee United boss admits his side are going to face another difficult test in Premiership League on Saturday.

Dundee United

just came back from a 3-0 defeat against


on Wednesday and their manager

Micky Mellon

admits that their game against


, whom they drew with in October, is going to be difficult for his side.

“Of course because they are a really experienced team at this level,” Mellon said.

“All their players have played at this level much more than ours.

“We have to take these challenges on and be a part of that and be part of a Dundee United team that always does that.

“We have to take it day by day, improving the players and supporting the players.

“Keep that belief in the players, and that they believe they can come to places like Celtic and make a big impact.”

Dundee United are now fifth in the


table and Mellon was more than happy with their form in the first half of the season after their return to the league.

“I think it has been better than okay, I think it has been fantastic but we are greedy for more,” he added.

“We will always put demands on the players but I think it has been terrific that they have attacked all or most of the games but today will be a learning curve.

“In the Scottish Premiership you have to play against teams like Celtic and you will learn from it and you will get better for the next time you play them.”
