St Mirren v Dundee Utd preview

St Mirren boss Danny Lennon has no fresh injury concerns to worry about ahead of the Boxing Day visit of Dundee United.

The Paisley side will hope to bounce back from successive Scottish Premiership defeats to Motherwell and Aberdeen as they face on the in-form Terrors.

The only casualties Lennon will not be able to count on are winger Gary Teale (hernia) and defender David Barron (ankle) who are still unavailable as they continue to battle back from injury.

Dundee United manager Jackie McNamara hopes to have a full squad for Thursday's showdown.

Winger Gary Mackay-Steven has a knock but is hoping to be available.

Full-back Keith Watson could also return after not being risked for the weekend win over Ross County following a knock.
