Team News: Dundee United
Benjamin Siegrist (Broken wrist), Jack Newman (Knee Injury), Dillon Powers (Concussion) and Declan Glass (Knee Surgery) will be missing for Dundee Utd boss Micky Mellon.
Team News: Ross County
Ross County manager John Hughes has to currently contend with reduced team options. Callum Morris (Achilles tendon surgery), Connor Randall (Back Injury) and Tom Grivosti (Hamstring Injury) will not be playing here.
When taking everything into account, Ross County will have to work hard as a team to breach the defence of this Dundee United team who we think should get the win and a maybe even keep a clean sheet as well.
We therefore fancy a good battle with a 1-0 victory for Dundee United at the end of the 90.
Should be a close one.
