Dundee Utd v Dundee preview

Dundee United manager Peter Houston has several injury worries

ahead of the derby.

United are still sweating on the fitness of Gary Mackay-Steven

(knee), Sean Dillon (groin), Johnny Russell (groin), and Gavin

Gunning (back).

Houston said: “It’s still to early to say about the injured guys

but we’ve just got to prepare as normal for the game.”

Martin Boyle goes straight into the Dundee squad.

The 19-year-old joined from Montrose on Thursday after hitting

22 goals last season and two already this term.

But midfielder Kevin McBride (foot) and Nicky Riley (hamstring)

and striker Carl Finnigan (knee) will all be missing.
