Terrors looking to down the 'Well

Dundee United are still without defender Sean Dillon with a continuation of a calf problem for the visit of Motherwell.

Otherwise, manager Peter Houston should have a strong enough squad to select from against the third-placed visitors.

"Motherwell have always made it tough for us," Houston told BBC Scotland. "I have a lot of respect for them for what they have done over the last few seasons. They are a similar club to us here at Dundee United and they have been consistently up there in the top half of the league.

Motherwell are currently without Shaun Hutchinson (ankle) and Steven Saunders (Achilles).
