Leaders head to Killie

Having comfortably despatched big rivals Dundee in their city derby last time out, unbeaten league leaders Dundee United visit Kilmarnock this weekend.

The Tangerines are boosted with the news that striker Johnny Russell is available to continue after his red card last week was downgraded.

Fellow forward Gary Mackay-Steven will also play despite going for surgery on his problematic knee next Tuesday. That is set to keep him out of action for around six weeks.

"We never get an easy match down at Rugby Park and I'm not expecting this one to be any different," manager Peter Houston explained to BBC Scotland. "We'll go there fully prepared for a tough 90 minutes as usual and hope to build on our first two results in the SPL.

"I think the way Killie play will also suit our style so it should be a game with plenty of goalscoring chances," he added. "It's been a good start but we never get too carried away about anything."

Killie are without goalkeeper Cammy Bell and Kyle Letheren will step in to deputise. Striker Paul Heffernan (collarbone) and Garry Hay (knee) are both out.
