TRAINING: Day two of pre-season

27 June 2013

Manager on what he wants from today

We caught up with manager Greg Abbott as he finalised the preparations for day two of pre-season training. 

"Today is about stepping things up just a little bit more," he said. 

"The first three days, starting yesterday, are always used to dust the cobwebs off and to get the minds back into focus.

"I think I said yesterday that the lads have done a lot of the work for me with the way that they have applied themselves since the moment they arrived. 

"We'll continue the theme with more ball work but the running side of it will be slightly harder than what they did yesterday. That gives them something to look forward to. 

"There's a real buzz around the place and working with this group is an absolute pleasure. It gets harder from here but the good thing is that they are all ready for it." 

Joining us for training today: 

Lee Miller - the popular striker is back and training with the club as contract talks continue. 

Josh Gillies - the attacking midfielder is taking part in his first session having joined up with the club on Wednesday. 

Lewis Guy - the Cumbrian-born forward has been given permission by parent-club St Mirren to join United for pre-season training. Guy, 27, has previously played for Newcastle, Doncaster and MK Dons.
