Dundee United are still without defender Sean Dillon with a continuation of a calf problem for the visit of Motherwell.

Otherwise, manager Peter Houston should have a strong enough squad to select from against the third-placed visitors.

“Motherwell have always made it tough for us,” Houston told BBC Scotland. “I have a lot of respect for them for what they have done over the last few seasons. They are a similar club to us here at Dundee United and they have been consistently up there in the top half of the league.

“One thing Motherwell have had is continuity because I could probably name seven or eight players who will play against us who have been there for a long time,” he added. “That has been great for Stuart McCall because he’s been able to go in there and keep them up at the top end of the table.”

Motherwell are currently without Shaun Hutchinson (ankle) and Steven Saunders (Achilles).
