Chris Millar and Collin Samuel are both expected to miss St Johnstone's clash against the Terrors with hamstring injuries.
Samuel missed the 2-0 defeat at Inverness on Saturday after suffering an injury late in the week.
And Millar limped off before half-time at the Tulloch Caledonian Stadium.
Garry Kenneth is out but Craig Conway is available again for Dundee United.
Kenneth suffered a medial ligament knee injury in Saturday's 2-1 loss at Hearts, a game in which United were without Conway following a knock the previous week against Celtic.
United are without striker Jon Daly following his hernia operation and long-term injury-victims Mihael Kovacevic, Darren Dods (both knee) and Scott Severin (ankle).
