Tangerines on a high after midweek win

Dundee United make the journey to the Highlands as they take on Inverness Caledonian Thistle this weekend.

Skipper Jon Daly returned for the midweek Scottish Communities League Cup win at Queen of the South and may continue leading their attack.

Fellow forward Gary Mackay-Steven is still absent following recent knee surgery. But defender Brian McLean should recover from a slight knock.

Caley are actually still looking for their first league win of the season and only scraped past Stenhousemuir on penalties in midweek.

Midfielder Owain Tudur Jones is definitely missing as he completes a three-match ban while Shane Sutherland and Nick Ross are both facing a spell on the sidelines.
