Dundee United will welcome Johnny Russell back into their squad following suspension for the trip to Edinburgh.

The striker missed the matches against Inverness and Airdrie after picking up a red card against Rangers a fortnight ago. He will be joined in the squad by Keith Watson, who was not risked against the Diamonds because of their artificial pitch.

Defender Sean Dillon remains doubtful because of a calf injury but Scott Robertson should be fit. Contract rebel Scott Allan is unlikely to be in the squad. Definitely out is leg-break victim Scott Severin, who will be on the sidelines for the rest of the season.

Danny Galbraith has dropped out of the Hibernian squad after the winger suffered strained ankle ligaments in Tuesday's win over Motherwell, which will rule him out for several weeks.

Matt Thornhill, Sean Welsh and Phil Airey remain on the sidelines.

Dundee Utd (from): Pernis, Douglas, Dixon, Watson, Dillon, Kenneth, Gunning, Smith, Allan, Flood, Rankin, Armstrong, Robertson, Mackay-Steven, Hilson, Dow, Marsh-Brown, Russell, Daly, Dalle Valle, Banks.

Hibs (from): Stack, Towell, Murray, O'Hanlon, Hanlon, Booth, Sproule, Wotherspoon, Palsson, Osbourne, Scott, O'Connor, Sodje, Griffiths, Agogo, Brown, Stevenson, Stephens.
