  • Craig Levein made three changes to the starting eleven which faced Hearts the previous week at Tynecastle. With Garry Kenneth suspended Darren Dods came back in to partner Lee Wilkie in central defence after the captain had shaken off a dead leg in time to play. Also starting was Sean Dillon, who returned at right back in place of Mihael Kovacevic, while David Robertson won a place in midfield ahead of Craig Conway. With Danny Swanson also suspended Prince Buaben returned to the bench as United searched for a vital three points in their quest for European football. In the Rangers side there was a return to Tannadice for former player Christian Dailly while Kris Boyd partnered Nacho Novo in attack.
