Dundee United again have an unchanged squad.

Midfielder Scott Robertson should be fit despite a bout of illness this week.

Danny Swanson (knee) is set to return to training next week, while utility man Scott Severin (broken leg) remains out.

Leigh Griffiths is available again for Hibs.

Griffiths served a one-match ban for making a gesture to Rangers fans, while his fellow striker Garry O'Connor should be able to continue after playing against Aberdeen despite a toe injury.

Midfielder Isaiah Osbourne remains out with an abductor injury, but captain Ian Murray remains in consideration after being an unused substitute at Pittodrie following a hip complaint.

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

Hibernian (from): Stack, Hart, Towell, O'Hanlon, Hanlon, Sproule, Wotherspoon, Palsson, Scott, O'Connor, Sodje, Galbraith, Agogo, Brown, Stevenson, Stephens, Booth, Murray, Welsh.
