Championship leaders Dundee United hope to press on at the top when travelling to Dumbarton on Saturday afternoon (kick-off 1.30pm).

The in-form visitors are once again without Dutch defender Frank van der Struijk because of a troublesome calf tear.

“Frank is going to be out for another two or three weeks, his calf tear isn’t improving,” manager Ray McKinnon admitted to the Dundee Evening Telegraph. “We are now probably going to get it scanned.

“That’s probably the only downside right now but we want to get to the bottom of it because he was doing well before he got hurt.”

Fellow full-back Lewis Toshney should though return from suspension having also shaken-off a foot injury.

“He’s still got a badly-bruised toe but he has had the injection we planned last week and that’s helped,” McKinnon added. “He’s training and will be OK for Saturday.”
