Dundee Utd v Ross County preview

Stuart Armstrong will not be in the Dundee United squad for Saturday's visit of Ross County to Tannadice.

The Scotland U21 captain injured his ankle during the 6-1 defeat by Celtic last weekend but Ryan Dow and Jarek Fojut will both feature despite picking up knocks at Celtic Park.

Assistant manager Simon Donnelly said: "Dow had been feeling his thigh a bit and it was tight but he has trained. Also, Jarek, who has had an Achilles problem that is manageable. Both should be fit for Saturday."

Defenders Sean Dillon (fractured cheekbone), Mark Wilson (broken foot) and John Souttar (ankle) remain on the sidelines.

Ross County manager Derek Adams has one or two knocks to contend with ahead of the trip to Tayside but he declined to name the injury concerns.

Defender Steven Saunders misses out again with an ankle problem while Dutch midfielder Marc Klok left the club in midweek.

County have made an inauspicious start to the new season and find themselves bottom of the division having lost their first three games.
