Thomson likely to shake off injury

Midfielder Thomson is the only fresh injury doubt for Walter

Smith’s side, who remain without goalkeeper Allan McGregor

(hamstring) for the rearranged match at Tannadice. Midfielder

Maurice Edu could make his first appearance of the season after

recovering from an ankle knock sustained recuperating from knee

surgery. Gers (from): Alexander, Whittaker, Broadfoot, Papac, Weir,

Davis, Thomson, McCulloch, Bougherra, Novo, Beasley, Edu, Miller,
