Terrors return to home action

Terrors return to home action

After scoring five times in their local derby against St Johnstone last weekend, which followed on from their great Scottish Cup victory at Rangers, Dundee United return to Tannadice to face St Mirren this time around.

The Terrors have a real doubt over central defender Garry Kenneth due to a groin injury suffered during the 5-1 triumph at McDiarmid Park. Sean Dillon is likely to continue after replacing him in that game.

Midfielder Danny Swanson was once more expected to miss out through injury while new striker Milos Lacny scored his first goal for the club last week but will almost certainly have to make do with again being on the bench.

"St Mirren are a good side so it's going to be a tough game," manager Peter Houston told BBC Scotland. "They have a good mix of experience and youth so we know we'll have to be at our best. We have a couple of home matches coming up and there is a lot at stake."

The Buddies are without suspended striker Steven Thompson, who joins Hugh Murray, Kenny McLean and Darren McGregor on the sidelines.
