Dundee United receive huge boost ahead of St Mirren's visit to Tannadice
The former Manchester United youngster returned to training following a knock and after missing last weekend’s 4-1 defeat by Hearts, he is expected to be back in the Tangerines’ midfield.
Manager Jack Ross could also call upon winger Logan Chalmers, who has recovered from a hamstring problem, but long-term absentee Peter Pawlett (Achilles) is still out.
Attacker Toyosi Olusanya is out for a period of time with a broken toe.
Defender Scott Tanser is on his way back from a combination of a hamstring and back injury but is touch and go for this weekend’s game.
Alex Gogic could make his second debut after he signed a two-year deal. The Cypriot spent the second half of last season on loan at the club from Hibs.
