Terrors reinforced for leaders visit

Dundee United have players returning for their visit to leaders Celtic later this evening.

Midfielders Stuart Armstrong (family illness) and Richie Ryan (hamstring) are both back in contention after missing their weekend
3-2 victory at Kilmarnock.

Meanwhile, central defender Brian McLean also returns from a three-match suspension following his recent sending-off against St Mirren.

"It's another big test," manager Peter Houston told BBC Scotland. "It will be a case of when we get the ball we have to keep it as much as possible.

"Ball retention is always important against a quality side like Celtic and it will be the same for this game," he added. "I'm sure that if we pass the ball like we can, we can do well."

Celtic are likely to again be without goalkeeper Fraser Forster due to a neck injury. There are also absences in the middle of defence with Efe Ambrose on African Nations Cup duty and Kelvin Wilson suspended.
