Dundee United are without winger Craig Conway for the visit of Killie.

The Scotland international needs a knee operation and will be ruled out until the new year.

He will be joined in the stands by Darren Dods (knee), Scott Severin (ankle) and Mihael Kovacevic (knee), but Danny Swanson has an outside chance of making it after returning to training this week.

Striker Jon Daly has been carrying a hamstring injury but could be recalled to the starting line-up.

Killie expect Frazer Wright to be fit for the trip to face the Terrors.

Wright limped off with a back/hip injury midway through the second half of the midweek win over Hamilton but the defender is confident of shaking off the problem.

Long-term injury absentees James Dayton and Alan Combe remain on the sidelines.

Dundee United (from): Pernis, Dillon, Watson, Dixon, Douglas, Kenneth, S Robertson, D Robertson, Swanson, Gomis, Buaben, Conway, Shala, Cadamarteri, Goodwillie, Russell, Dow, Hill, Mentel, Banks.

Kilmarnock (from): Bell, Sissoko, Gordon, Wright, Hamill, Bryson, Pascali, Silva, Invincibile, Kelly, Eremenko, Forrester, Miguel, Sammon, Clancy, Letheren, Hay, Taouil.
