Dundee United will be without full-back Keith Watson for the game.

Watson had a hernia operation on Thursday so will miss the final day of the season.

Boss Peter Houston, without long-term injury absentee Darren Dods, will hand jerseys to Craig Conway, David Robertson, Prince Buaben and Morgaro Gomis to make final appearances.

Danny Swanson is missing with a hamstring strain.

Hearts have a host of fitness concerns for Sunday's game.

David Obua is suspended following his dismissal against Celtic.

With third place assured, Hearts manager Jim Jefferies may opt not to risk the doubtful Adrian Mrowiec (thigh), Andy Webster (groin), Lee Wallace (ankle), Jason Thomson (hamstring) and Ruben Palazuelos (illness).

Eggert Jonsson is free to play after a successful appeal over his dismissal against Rangers, but David Templeton (hamstring), Andrew Driver (hernia), Suso Santana (knee), Calum Elliot (knee) and Kevin Kyle (hip) are all out.

Dundee Utd (from): Pernis, Dillon, Severin, Kenneth, Kovacevic, Douglas, Dixon, Buaben, D Robertson, S Robertson, Gomis, Conway, Armstrong, Shala, Daly, Goodwillie, Russell, Mentel.
