United manager Jackie McNamara could be without six first-team players. Suspended midfielders John Rankin and Willo Flood have joined long-term injury victims Johnny Russell (broken leg) and Gavin Gunning (knee) on the sidelines, while captain Jon Daly (groin) and defender Brian McLean (hamstring) are struggling.
Steve Simonsen is set for his Dundee debut after signing a short-term deal earlier this week - the former Everton and Stoke goalkeeper will replace Rab Douglas, who has been struggling with a thigh injury. Midfielders Stephen O'Donnell, Mark Kerr (both knee) and Jamie McCluskey (Achilles) are all still missing.
