CRAIG EASTON expects to face a determined Dundee United side following their cup exit against Falkirk – but the Dunfermline midfielder has warned his former club that the Pars are intent on building on recent improvement.
United manager Peter Houston publicly addressed reports he faced the sack in the wake of their penalties loss in the Scottish Communities League Cup.
The Tayside club go into the game one point and one place above the Pars in the bottom three of the Clydesdale Bank Premier League today.
Easton, who left United for Livingston in 2004 before a long spell in England, said: “They struggled the other night but it was a tough tie for them. I know they are getting a bit of stick but it was never going to be easy.
“It will be a tough game for us. I’m sure they will want to put the cup tie behind them, so they will be right up for this.
“We have to be ready for that, and I’m sure we will.”
