Fellow defenders Garry Kenneth and Darren Dods are still suffering from the knocks they took last weekend but are expected to play through the pain barrier.
Striker Jon Daly is struggling with a thigh strain while his strike partner David Goodwillie is carrying a groin problem. Definitely ruled out are Francisco Sandaza (groin), Lee Wilkie (knee), Danny Cadamarteri (calf) and Scott Robertson (groin).
Dundee United (from): Pernis, Dixon, Dods, Kenneth, Webster, Watson, Dillon, Kovacevic, Buaben, Gomis, D Robertson, Swanson, Conway, Shala, Myrie-Williams, Daly, Goodwillie, Casalinuovo, Banks.
