Footymad preview History of the Heart of Midlothian v Dundee United fixture

Dundee United face a trip to Heart of Midlothian at Tynecastle Stadium on Sunday afternoon, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The The Terrors will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them lose 41 and win only 17 of the 78 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides was less than a year ago, in February 2011, the Jambo's carving out a narrow 2-1 victory in a Scottish Premier match.
