LIVE: Dundee United 1-0 Inverness Caley Thistle

After their weekend draw at Falkirk, Dundee United look to get back to winning ways in the Championship as Inverness Caley Thistle visit Tannadice.

Mark Reynolds returns to the heart of the defence after missing two games because he doesn't play on plastic pitches and Paul McMullan is also back in the starting XI.

With top two Ross County and Ayr United clashing up in Dingwall, a win for the Tangerines will see them close the gap on the leaders, or move up to second, or even both.

Teams: Utd - Siegrist, Seaman, Reynolds, Connolly, Robson, Harkes, Butcher, McMullan, Clark, Pawlett, Safranko.

ICT - Ridgers, Rooney, Chalmers, Donaldson, Polworth, Austin, Welsh, White, McKay, Trafford, McHattie.
