St Mirren v Dundee Utd preview

Date published: Tuesday 27th December 2011 1:44

St Mirren manager Danny Lennon has no fresh injury concerns ahead of the game.

His players came through the weekend action unscathed, meaning the Buddies boss has the option of naming the same side who defeated Rangers in their last outing.

Saints have also been boosted by the return of Hugh Murray, who made his first appearance of the season on Saturday after recovering from knee surgery.

Willo Flood should be available for the game after missing Saturday’s win over Hibernian due to illness.

Forward Lauri Dalla Valle has also been ill this week and is a doubt.

Danny Swanson (knee) has resumed training as he steps up his rehabilitation, while utility man Scott Severin (broken leg) remains out.

St Mirren (from): Samson, Mair, van Zanten, McAusland, Barron, Tesselaar, Carey, Teale, Mooy, Murray, McLean, Thompson, Hasselbaink, McGowan, McShane, Thomson, Haddad, Smith.

Dundee 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.

David Barron is a major doubt for St Mirren.

The defender is struggling with a calf injury ahead of the Paisley contest.

Nick Hegarty, Garry Brady and Gareth Wardlaw remain on the sidelines.

Jon Daly and Scott Robertson are suspended for United.

The pair were each sent off for two bookable offences in United’s 1-1 draw at Kilmarnock last Saturday, while Danny Swanson (back) is set to be named on the bench despite only recently returning to training.

Garry Kenneth, who scored the equaliser at Rugby Park despite a dead leg, is set to start, but Paul Dixon (ankle), Mihael Kovacevic (knee), Scott Severin (foot) and Darren Dods (knee) remain out.

Buddies (from): Gallacher, Mair, van Zanten, Potter, McGregor, Travner, Goodwin, Thomson, McQuade, Murray, Cregg, McAusland, Higdon, McGowan, Dargo, Mooy, Samson, McLean.

Terrors (from): Pernis, Dillon, Watson, Douglas, D Robertson, Kenneth, Gomis, Buaben, Shala, Cadamarteri, Conway, Russell, Dow, Armstrong, Mentel, Banks, Goodwillie, Swanson.
