Hearts v Dundee United preview

Darren Barr, Jason Holt, Arvydas Novikovas and Mehdi Taouil should be fit as Hearts tackle Dundee United in the Scottish Premier League on Sunday.

Barr (shin), Holt, Novikovas (both ankle) and Taouil (groin) should shake off knocks in time to play.

Midfielder Scott Robinson is available following a dispute, but due to the returning players may not be included, while Jamie Hamill and Danny Grainger (both knee) remain out.

Dundee United defender Sean Dillon is a major doubt Sunday's trip to Edinburgh.

The Irishman has missed the last three games with a troublesome thigh injury so looks like missing out again.

Winger Gary Mackay-Steven remains on the sidelines after breaking his hand in the recent match away to Ross County.
