Dundee United boss Micky Mellon has vowed to set his team up to attack in order to earn a top six finish this season.

As it stands, the Tannadice side are two points behind St Mirren in the battle to earn a top six spot. With three games left until the split, Mellon knows that every point is precious if United are to land in the top six. With that in mind, Mellon is going to put his team on the front foot. Starting against Kilmarnock at Rugby Park this afternoon.

“Massively important”

“It would be wrong for me not to say all the games are massively important now” he said (The Courier).

“You have to go and attack all of them, like we have been doing. Because we know the huge value of three points over the next three games.

“We will try to get the points necessary to claim that prize” the United boss stated.

Wants to build on success

Looking ahead, Mellon wants to build on the success of this season. A season has seen United safely avoid the relegation zone in their return to the Premiership.

“We want to bring it all together to score goals and keep clean sheets. I am pleased we are at a certain stage. And now I am determined to maintain and build on those standards” Mellon concluded.

In the present, Mellon and United have three games left which will determine their top six fate. A trip to Kilmarnock, a home game against Celtic and a ‘New Firm’ derby against Aberdeen.

Nine points from those games would go a long way towards earning that top six spot.
