Dundee United vs Hibernian – Tuesday, 6pm, live on Sky Sports Football and Main Event

Dundee United: Dundee United boss Micky Mellon may opt against risking Lawrence Shankland following his minor muscular injury. Lewis Smith has been ruled out for a few weeks after being injured on Saturday in the win at Motherwell.

Hibernian: Given the manner of Hibernian’s win at Livingston, manager Jack Ross could go with the same starting XI. Should Ross revert to a back three, Scott Allan will likely be recalled in midfield.

Key stat: Dundee United have only lost one of their last 12 top-flight games against Hibernian (W6 D5), a 1-2 defeat in November 2012 under Peter Houston.
