Team news

Benjamin Siegrist could return in goal for Dundee United for the big clash with city rivals Dundee at Tannadice. The 29-year-old Swiss keeper has recovered from a knee injury sustained in the build-up to United's game with St Johnstone last month. Liam Smith and Louis Appere are working with the physio to recover from knocks.

Dundee midfielder Charlie Adam has a chance of returning from injury for the Tannadice clash. Christie Elliott is also in contention after a knock. Danny Mullen (ankle) remains on the sidelines.

Opta stats

  • This will be the first Dundee derby in the Scottish Premiership since May 2016, when Dundee ran out 2-1 winners despite falling behind thanks to goals from Kostadin Gadzhalov and a 90th-minute winner from Craig Wighton.
  • Dundee United have only lost one of their last 14 home top-flight games against Dundee (W4 D9), a 2-1 reverse in August 2004 under Ian McCall.
  • In their four meetings in the last season in which Dundee United and Dundee faced off in the Scottish Premiership (2015-16), the side scoring the opening goal never won (D2 L2).

How to follow: Dundee Utd vs Dundee will be shown live on Sky Sports Football and Main Event from 11am; kick-off 12pm.

Greg Taylor (shoulder), Kyogo Furuhashi (knee), Christopher Jullien (knee), Mikey Johnston (hamstring) and Karamoko Dembele (ankle) are still missing.

Highlights of the Scottish Premiership clash between St Johnstone and Rangers.

Team news

Motherwell have captain Stephen O'Donnell available after a calf strain. Left-back Jake Carroll is suspended for the Steelmen.

Rangers winger Ryan Kent is out of the Ibrox encounter. The Gers player picked up a hamstring injury in the home 2-0 Europa League defeat by Lyon on Thursday night and requires a scan. Striker Alfredo Morelos is a doubt with a hamstring problem and defender Filip Helander is out with a knee injury, along with other long-term absentees Ryan Jack (calf) and Nnamdi Ofoborh (heart issue).

Opta stats

  • Motherwell are winless in 34 top-flight league away games at Rangers (D5 L29) since a 2-0 win in May 1997 thanks to a brace from Owen Coyle. Indeed, current Rangers manager Steven Gerrard was yet to make his debut as a player for Liverpool (Nov 1998) the last time the Steelmen won at Ibrox in Scotland's top division.
