Dundee Utd v Hibernian preview

Dundee United defenders Keith Watson and Calum Butcher return from suspension for Sunday's Scottish Premiership clash with Hibernian.

The duo each received red cards in the recent defeats to St Mirren and St Johnstone and sat out the 2-1 loss to Aberdeen on New Year's Day.

That home defeat saw United drop to fifth in the table, and manager Jackie McNamara will welcome the pair back after the team conceded nine goals in their last three games.

Hibs midfielder Scott Robertson is a doubt for the match after he had to be taken off in the second half of the derby victory over Hearts on Thursday.

The midfielder felt a tightening of his calf muscles during the 2-1 win at Tynecastle and may not have recovered in time to feature at Tannadice Park.

However, striker Paul Heffernan is in line for a start, having come off the bench against the Jambos after recovering from a thigh injury.
