St Johnstone vs. Dundee United

McDiarmid Park

Tue 22nd Feb


St Johnstone v Dundee United

Dundee United will be determined to make up for their weekend disappointment when travelling to face St Johnstone at McDiarmid Park on Tuesday evening. The visitors suffered a late defeat at Hearts in their latest game after leading goalscorer David Goodwillie had a last-minute penalty saved - and that only moments after conceding the eventual winner. Both United and their next opponents are currently locked together in mid-table on 29 points, although the Terrors still have a couple of games in hand on them following a succession of earlier postponements.

Vital Quotes:

"I was really disappointed with the attitude to losing the first goal up until half-time," St Johnstone boss Derek McInnes told BBC Scotland. "We have got to have a level of performance that's better than that for us to win games in the SPL. But we have got a derby game to hopefully try to remedy that and give them something to cheer about."

"St Johnstone are a good side. I like them as a team," Dundee United manager Peter Houston admitted to BBC Scotland. "They've got good experience and good young players as well. I like the balance of their side and, if we're going to go to Tayside and win the match, I think it will be a tough one. Certainly, if the ground's loaded and heavy, you've got to think about what players we're going to play - and that's what we'll probably take that into consideration."

St Johnstone Team News:

Saints are expected to be without both Chris Millar and Collin Samuel. Millar hobbled out of their weekend 2-0 defeat at Inverness Caledonian Thistle - a game that Samuel was already ruled out of because of injury.
St Johnstone (from): Enckelman, Duberry, MacKay, Anderson, Morris, Taylor, Craig, Davidson, Millar, May, Samuel, MacDonald, Novikovas, Maybury, Parkin, Caddis, Adams, Smith

Player to watch: Liam Craig

Decent level of ability and offers added flair in the middle of the pitch.

Dundee United Team News:

Craig Conway should be back after missing the unfortunate weekend defeat at Hearts. Garry Kenneth limped out of that game with a medial ligament knee injury and joins the likes of skipper Jon Daly, Mihael Kovacevic, Darren Dods and Scott Severin on the sidlines.
Dundee United (from): Pernis, Dillon, Van der Maulen, Watson, Douglas, Swanson, Gomis, Conway, Buaben, Armstrong, S. Robertson, D Robertson, Goodwillie, Russell, Banks, Dow, Smith, Allan, Mentel

Player to watch: Sean Dillon

Missing so many fellow defenders it puts even greater responsibility on the former Republic of Ireland Under-21 international.
