Dundee United v Celtic preview

Dundee United will welcome back winger Craig Conway for the visit

of the Hoops. The Scotland international has been missing for five

weeks with a knee injury but will make his comeback this weekend.

United will also have defenders Darren Dods and Garry Kenneth

available after recent injury scares, but midfielder Danny Swanson

misses out because of a back problem. Emilio Izaguirre, Paddy

McCourt, Jos Hooiveld and Niall McGinn are all back for the game at

Tannadice. Charlie Mulgrew (hamstring), James Forrest (ankle),

Thomas Rogne (calf) are still out while Daryl Murphy will have an

ankle knock monitored. Skipper Scott Brown is out for 10 weeks with

an ankle complaint and Beram Kayal could be out for 12 weeks

following a hernia operation which took place today. Dundee United
