Dundee United v St Mirren

Successive 1-0 victories for the Arabs and they will be expecting to add to that when facing bottom club St Mirren at Tannadice tonight. In-form striker David Goodwillie gave them a 1-0 win at Hamilton Academical at the weekend - as he also did against Hibernian seven days earlier - which means he has now found the net in six successive league games.

Vital Quotes:

"I watched St Mirren against Rangers on Sunday. They stifled Rangers for a long time but lost a bad goal and that let them go on to win the game," Arabs manager Peter Houston told BBC Scotland. "St Mirren will be organised and will look to hit us on the counter-attack so it's going to be a test for us. But if we play the way we did in the second half on Saturday, which is the best we've passed the ball for a while, then I'm sure we'll do okay."

"We certainly see that we are making progress," said Saints chief Danny Lennon to BBC Scotland. "From third place, it's relatively tight. You look at teams like Kilmarnock and Dundee United and you can see what a couple of wins can do for you, it can put you right back in there."

Dundee United Team News:

Arabs manager Peter Houston is set to recall David Goodwillie and Jon Daly after both were initially left on the bench in the latest win at Hamilton. The hosts have their usual sizeable list of absentees with defenders Scott Severin, Darren Dods and Mihael Kovacevic all still out and Danny Swanson and Craig Conway both doubtful.
Dundee United (from): Pernis, Dillon, Watson, Dixon, Douglas, Kenneth, S. Robertson, D. Robertson, Swanson, Gomis, Buaben, Conway, Shala, Cadamarteri, Goodwillie, Russell, Allan, Dow, Hill, Mentel, Banks

Player to watch: David Goodwillie

Can't really be anyone else - six goals in his last six league games and seven in eight in all competitions.

St Mirren Team News:

The Buddies will still be minus Craig Dargo, David Barron and Steven Robb and could well find themselves unchanged from their weekend home defeat to Rangers.
St Mirren (from): Samson, van Zanten, McAusland, Potter, McGregor, Travner, Cregg, Murray, Mooy, Higdon, McGowan, Wardlaw, McCluskey, Mathers, Brady, McQuade, McLean, Kennedy

Player to watch: Michael Higdon

Four goals in six games this season for the ex-Falkirk striker.

Match Facts & Stats

It's back-to-back wins for Dundee United against Hamilton and Hibernian after three successive defeats to Motherwell (twice) and Celtic. Striker David Goodwillie has scored in each of their last six league games and has seven in eight in all competitions. St Mirren lost at home to SPL leaders Rangers at the weekend and face their Old Firm rivals Celtic next Sunday. But they did manage to defeat troubled Aberdeen 2-1 in their previous game to that one.
