Inverness have no fresh concerns, with Jonny Hayes again set to miss out.
Hayes (foot) has missed the last two matches and is set to be absent once more at the Tulloch Caledonian Stadium, but Nick Ross, who came off the bench in last Saturday's 2-0 loss to Hibernian, and Gareth Morrison, who was an unused substitute, are poised to be part of the squad.
David Proctor (hamstring) and Dani Sanchez (hand) are again out, with Kenny Gillet stepping up his training and nearing a return.
Dundee United have an unchanged squad for the trip to Inverness.
Jon Daly (hernia) and Garry Kenneth (knee) remain on the sidelines but could return in the next two weeks.
Boss Peter Houston will be minus long-term injury victims Mihael Kovacevic, Darren Dods (both knee) and Scott Severin (ankle).
