Dundee Utd v Motherwell prev

​Dundee United hope winger Gary Mackay-Steven can overcome an ankle injury to face Motherwell.

The wide man came off with the injury during Sunday's impressive 3-0 win at Aberdeen.

United still have several defenders missing after Sean Dillon (fractured cheekbone), Mark Wilson (broken foot) and John Souttar (ankle) missed the Pittodrie trip.

Adam Cummins has joined fellow Motherwell defenders Steven Hammell and Simon Ramsden on the injury list ahead of the trip to Tannadice.

Craig Reid, Zaine Francis-Angol and Fraser Kerr will again play through injury after coming through Saturday's 1-0 win over St Mirren.

Paul Lawson will not be involved as he is building up match-fitness following Achilles surgery while Iain Vigurs is a fitness doubt and striker Craig Moore (knee) remains out.
