Team News: Dundee United
There is just one fitness concern for the Dundee United gaffer Micky Mellon to be concerned about thanks to an almost full-strength squad. Jack Newman (Quarantine) is out of contention.
Team News: Aberdeen
Aberdeen boss Derek McInnes has to choose a team with limited availability. Greg Leigh (Knock) and Tomas Cerny (Surgery) will miss out on this game.
Looking at these two teams, we feel that Dundee United might have a difficult job to see themselves scoring against this Aberdeen outfit who we think will likely gain the upper hand.
Therefore, we predict a very even match with a 0-1 winning score for Aberdeen at the conclusion of the game.
Will be interesting to see how this one goes.
