Team News: Dundee United
Dundee United manager Micky Mellon has no fitness concerns to speak of ahead of this match thanks to a fully healthy squad available for selection.
We are thinking that The Tangerines will possibly opt for a 4-4-2 formation for this one with Benjamin Siegrist, Jamie Robson, Mark Connolly, Mark Reynolds, Liam Smith, Luke Bolton, Peter Pawlett, Ian Harkes, Calum Butcher, Louis Appéré and Logan Chalmers.
Team News: Hibernian
Thanks to a completely injury-free group available for selection, Hibernian boss Jack Ross does not have any fitness worries to speak of coming into this game.
We believe The Hibees seem most likely to make use of a 4-4-2 formation, settling for Ofir Marciano, Paul McGinn, Paul Hanlon, Ryan Porteous, Chris Doig, Martin Boyle, Joe Newell, Alexandros Gogic, Daryl Horgan, Christian Doidge and Kevin Nisbet.
When taking all factors into account, Hibernian and Dundee United could both end up scoring in a what should be a good tussle with little between the two teams.
A draw looks like a realistic possibility, but we’ll see what happens. That is why we are leaning toward a tight encounter with a 1-1 scoreline at full-time.
