United are without suspended captain Jon Daly.

The Irishman is banned after going through the points barrier with his red card at Kilmarnock two weeks ago and will be replaced by Johnny Russell.

Danny Swanson is in contention after coming through a reserve game on Tuesday unscathed following back and appendix problems but Mihael Kovacevic (knee), Darren Dods (knee) and Scott Severin (ankle) are still out.

Celtic skipper Scott Brown is rated 50-50 by Neil Lennon for Sunday's game.

The Hoops midfielder pulled up in the warm-up before Scotland's Carling Nations Cup win over Northern Ireland at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin on Wednesday night after aggravating a groin complaint and was replaced by James McArthur.

Glenn Loovens is also a doubt with a virus while Thomas Rogne (calf) and James Forrest (hamstring) are back in contention.

Dundee United (from): Pernis, Dillon, Kenneth, Van der Meulen, Watson, Douglas, Swanson, Gomis, Conway, Buaben, Armstrong, S Robertson, D Robertson, Conway, Goodwillie, Russell, Banks, Dow.
