DUNDEE UNITED are said to be confident of getting Sunday's clash with Celtic on. 

We told you last night how the Premiership clash has been thrown into major doubt after damage to Tannadice caused by Storm Arwen. 

The match - which is a Sky Sports TV pick - is due to kick-off at 12noon.

United club officials have rushed to carry out emergency repairs to the stadium.

Now, according to the Daily Record, the Tayside club are optimistic that the necessary works will be complete in time for Sunday's match.

A statement from United on Wednesday reads: "Following Friday night's Storm Arwen, we can confirm parts of the Jerry Kerr Stand roof were damaged. As a result Dundee City Council closed the road outside.

"Assessment of damage and restoration will begin today and is expected to last a few days."

It's said that a further update will be provided by the club later today.
