Dundee United v St Johnstone

Fresh from booking their place in the last eight of the Co-operative Insurance Cup, Dundee United return to league action with a visit from St Johnstone, who were also successful in the same competition in midweek to earn a plum home tie with Celtic. The Arabs will be looking to get back on track following their four-goal mauling at Rangers last weekend, when defensive frailties, combined with absentees and injuries, really cost them dearly.

Vital Quotes:

"Any matches we've had with St Johnstone over the last couple of years have been very, very close-fought affairs," Arabs boss Peter HOuston told BBC Sport. "I don't think there has been much between the teams. I'm expecting a tough fixture, but in derby matches anything can happen."

"Form doesn't always count in derbies but we've scored five goals in the last two games and we've played a lot more like ourselves, and I'm delighted with the players' approach to the last couple of games," Saints manager Derek McInnes told BBC Sport.

Dundee United Team News:

The Arabs will hand a late fitness test to defender Garry Kenneth after he missed their last two games with a calf problem. Left-back Barry Douglas (ankle) is definitely unavailable, while both Danny Swanson (hamstring) and Craig Conway (knee) are closing in on returns.
Dundee United (from): Pernis, Dixon, Dillon, Dods, Conway, Gomis, S. Robertson, D. Robertson, Buaben, Cadamarteri, Severin, Daly, Goodwillie, Shala, Russell, Mentel

Player to watch: Garry Kenneth

The possible return of the big defender would be a major boost at the back for manager Peter Houston.

St Johnstone Team News:

Saints striker Andy Jackson is back after suffering a head injury last week and missing their midweek Co-operative Insurance Cup win against Queen of the South.

Player to watch: Jennison Myrie-Williams

Returns to face his former club following his recent release from Tannadice.
