United have no fresh concerns.

Garry Kenneth has a slight knee problem, but should be fit, while fellow defender Sean Dillon returned off the bench following a calf injury in last weekend's draw at Motherwell and is in contention to start.

Midfielder Danny Swanson (knee) and utility man Scott Severin (broken leg) remain out.

Celtic's Joe Ledley has ruled himself out.

The Hoops midfielder, who picked up an ankle knock against Atletico Madrid at Parkhead on Wednesday night, revealed on his Twitter account today that he is still waiting on the results of a scan and will miss the trip to Tayside.

Manager Neil Lennon hopes midfielder Victor Wanyama will have recovered from a dead leg while Badr El-Kaddouri is back after being cup-tied for the game against Atletico.

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

Celtic (from): Forster, Matthews, El-Kaddouri, Majstorovic, Loovens, Mulgrew, Forrest, Wanyama, Hooper, Kayal, Ki, Stokes, Brown, Samaras, Zaluska, Bangura, McCourt, McGeouch, Filip Twardzik.
