Dundee United visit bottom club Hearts this evening looking to strengthen their current fourth place in the table (kick-off 7.45pm).

Both Nadir Ciftci and Andrew Robertson are available ahead of suspensions later this month. But on loan Newcastle United defender Curtis Good is still ruled out for the visitors as they seek to build upon their dramatic late win against St Mirren.

“The boys have had a lot of credit for the manner in which they won last week,” manager Jackie McNamara told BBC Scotland. “That was rightly so as they had to dig really deep to get the result and we’ll have to show that kind of commitment and attitude again because Hearts will be very tough opponents.

“Even when we got to 2-2 against St Mirren we didn’t settle and we wanted to get the winner,” he added. “Sometimes you have to do that in football because it’s always a good thing if you can score late goals.”

Hearts have winger David Smith recovered from a knee injury but Jamie Walker and Callum Tapping remain sidelined.
