MIDFIELDER Frank Ross reckons Morton may have to weather an early storm at Tannadice tomorrow.

Ross believes it may take time for Jim Duffy’s side to get a foothold in the game, due to United’s passion for possession.

The youngster, who joined Morton last week on a loan deal from Aberdeen, is going into unfamiliar territory but hopes to make his visit to Tayside one to remember.

He said: “I don’t think I’ve ever played at Tannadice but I’ve watched Dundee United on video and they are really good.

“It might be backs against the wall for a little bit but if we play the way the gaffer is telling us to play then we’ve got a good chance of winning.

“Obviously they’ll have a lot of the ball, so we’ll have to be good defensively and hopefully get a couple of goals at the other end.”

Ross maintains that Ton can keep in touch with the promotion play-off spots if they continue to show up well.

He said: “Our main aim is to get to the play-offs and try to get promoted, so every game we need to win and do our best. We’ll push up and try to stop United from playing. And we’ll try to grow into the game.

“We have got players in the team that can create chances and hopefully we can do that.”
