Tangerines hope to down Well

Third-placed Motherwell provide the opposition at Fir Park this weekend as Dundee United try to build upon last week's triumph against Hearts.

Defender Sean Dillon is ready for selection following a recent calf injury but midfielder Stuart Armstrong is carrying an ankle knock and rated doubtful.

Both Danny Swanson and Scott Severin remain long-term casualties for the mid-table visitors.

"Motherwell are having a fantastic season and have been really consistent so that is why they have been able to get so far ahead of the rest," manager Peter Houston told The Courier. "They have good experience and quality young players so they are a very good blend.

"It is going to be a very tough match and with their form we will certainly go in as underdogs. Motherwell are overwhelming favourites but we don't fear it," he added. "We will go there with confidence because since as far back as the St Johnstone game last month we have been playing very well."

Motherwell are missing defender Tim Clancy as he completes a two-match ban, while Steven Saunders and Lee Hollis are similarly ruled out.

Otherwise, midfielder Stephen Hughes and forward Bob McHugh could be included.
