Webster was thought to be a major injury doubt with a calf injury but that has since been diagnosed as a nerve problem in his back.

Full-back Mihael Kovacevic is hoping to shake off a hamstring strain, but Garry Kenneth is suspended and Scott Robertson (groin) is a long-term absentee.

Dundee United (from): Pernis, Dods, Webster, Mihadjuks, Dixon, Watson, Kovacevic, Dillon, Buaben, Gomis, D Robertson, Swanson, Conway, Shala, Myrie-Williams, Daly, Smith, Goodwillie, Cadamarteri, Banks.
