Kilmarnock manager Mixu Paatelainen has an unchanged squad to pick from.

Frazer Wright has fully recovered from the rib injury that he played through at Hamilton last weekend.

Paatelainen is still missing long-term injury victims James Dayton, James Fowler and Alan Combe.

Dundee United will be without winger Craig Conway for the trip to Kilmarnock.

The Scotland international has been suffering from a medial ligament strain for the past three weeks and although a recent scan showed no lasting damage will not make the journey to Ayrshire.

Garry Kenneth has recovered from a head knock so will play but Barry Douglas is ruled out with a calf strain while Danny Swanson's hamstring injury will prevent him from playing.

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

Dundee United (from): Pernis, Dixon, Dillon, Watson, Dods, Severin, Kenneth, Gomis, Buaben, S Robertson, D Robertson, Cadamarteri, Daly, Goodwillie, Shala, Russell, Hill, Dow, Banks.
