Queen of the South v Dundee United
Having finally got back to winning ways in the Championship last time out, Dundee United are visiting the club immediately below them in the table, Queen of the South, this weekend.
Striker Simon Murray's thirteenth goal of the campaign and another from defender Mark Durnan secured the hosts a first league win since early February at the expense of Ayr United. That was sufficient to move them within a single-point of second-placed Falkirk.
However, defender Sean Dillon would appear to be out for the rest of the season having damaged ankle ligaments during the recent league defeat to St Mirren.
Midfielder Scott Fraser is another already sidelined for the remaining games, but fellow playmaker Blair Spittal should at least return to action next week.
"I think we are looking at four to six weeks before Sean is able to get back training," manager Ray McKinnon confirmed to the Dundee Evening Telegraph. "After that he'll need to do a bit of work to get his fitness back, so his season is probably over.
"It's a blow because each time Sean's played he's done well and, with the games coming thick and fast, the injuries we have means we're a bit stretched," he admitted. "Scott Fraser definitely won't be back until next season but at least it looks like Blair Spittal will get half-an-hour for the Development team in the next week."
The hosts are able to welcome back Dale Hilson to their ranks.
