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.

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