Derby reverts attention back to league

Derby reverts attention back to league

Following their cup heroics Dundee United must concentrate on league action with a weekend local derby against St Johnstone at McDiarmid Park.

Recent signing Milos Lacny is likely to once again be on the bench after coming on late in the 2-0 Scottish Cup triumph at Rangers. Midfielder Danny Swanson is back in training but not yet ready for consideration.

Saints midfielder Murray Davidson is doubtful with the ankle injury that forced him out of last week's game against Hearts.
