There is League Cup action on Tuesday as Dundee United will play Kelty Hearts.
Our predictions, user poll and statistics for Dundee United v Kelty Hearts can be found here - along with the latest match odds.
Dundee United will be looking to improve on their last outing here following a 0-1 League Cup defeat in their last game at the hands of Peterhead.
Steven Boyd (51') scored for Peterhead.
It’s been a rare occasion in recent games where Dundee United have shown defensive steel. The reality is that The Tangerines have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 6 of their previous 6 clashes, shipping 11 goals on the way. Even so, it remains to be seen if the trend will be maintained in this match.
Following on from being beaten in their last game against St Johnstone in League Cup action, Kelty Hearts and their travelling fans will hope for a better result here.
Jason Kerr (45') and Chris Kane (60') scored for St Johnstone.
Team News: Dundee United
Looking at personnel, there is just the sole fitness concern for the Dundee United manager Micky Mellon to contend with from an otherwise complete group of players. Jack Newman (Quarantine) is out of contention.
Team News: Kelty Hearts
With a completely healthy group available for selection, Kelty Hearts manager Barry Ferguson doesn’t have any fitness worries at all before this game.
Our feeling is that Dundee United are likely to stay in control for long periods of time and should be able to convert a few of the chances that they create.
At the same time, Kelty Hearts may well struggle to score themselves but we can see them converting at least once here, too.
We’re therefore expecting to see a pretty comfortable 3-1 victory for Dundee United when the full-time whistle blows.
