Dundee United are back in league action and hosting Kilmarnock at Tannadice this weekend.

The Tangerines won for the first time in eight attempts against St Mirren in the Scottish Cup last time out.

Goalkeeper Radoslaw Cierzniak picked up a thigh strain in that game but has since recovered. Midfielder Stuart Armstrong should similarly overcome a calf injury but defender Gavin Gunning remains doubtful.

“We want to get back doing what we were doing earlier in the season,” manager Jackie McNamara told BBC Scotland. “It was important we won the St Mirren cup tie last week because it helps confidence.

“The lads deserved it for the way they played and we know what they’re capable of on their day,” he added. “Now it’s a case of trying to build on it when Kilmarnock come to our place.”

Greg Kiltie faces a late check for the visitors and Sean Clohessy is carrying an ankle problem, while on loan forward Michael Gardyne is not allowed to face his parent club.
