Dundee United full-back Keith Watson hopes to recover from a shoulder injury in time to face St Mirren. Winger Gary Mackay-Steven is still out after breaking his hand recently while Sean Dillon is set to be sidelined again as he struggles to get over a thigh injury.

St Mirren will be without Kenny McLean after he underwent minor knee surgery and is expected to be sidelined for a number of weeks. Marc McAusland and Jim Goodwin are both back from suspension, while Paul Dummett could also come into contention after missing the Boxing Day draw at Inverness with a muscle complaint.
