Paul Dixon out for Dundee United's encounter with Raith

Dundee United miss Paul Dixon who has a knee injury when table-topping Raith Rovers come calling.

Manager Ray McKinnon, who left Stark's Park for Tannadice in the summer, is not surprised how well the Kirkcaldy side have done.

He said: "Gary Locke is a good manager and he has added well to a strong squad that was there. I enjoyed my time at Raith but I moved on and so have they and it is all about winning against each other.

"We had a very solid win against Ayr last weekend and it was good to score three times and not concede. We will look to build on that."

Rovers hope to add former Kilmarnock goalkeeper Conor Brennan to their squad as regular number one Kevin Cuthbert is suffering from a dead leg and on-loan Aberdeen shot-stopper Aaron Lennox has a hamstring injury.

Craig Barr and Scott Robertson are out with groin injuries and Chris Johnstone is a doubt.

Manager Locke said: "We have been building momentum with three good wins in a row, however our strength in depth will be tested in this game as United are a very strong side at home.

"However if we play like we have been playing then we have a chance of picking up the three points."
