Tangerines aim to bounce back

Defender Sean Dillon looks set to miss out for Dundee United as they visit Aberdeen's Pittodrie Stadium this weekend.

Dublin-born Dillon has failed to properly shake-off an ongoing calf problems and may be joined on the sidelines by fellow defender Keith Watson due to an ankle injury.

But midfielder Danny Swanson is available for selection as the visitors aim to bounce back from their recent home loss to Motherwell.

"The lads have been working very hard in training and there is a determination to put things right after the Motherwell game," manager Peter Houston told BBC Scotland.

Aberdeen are still without goalkeeper Jamie Langfield in what should be an unchanged squad.
