Recent respective form guides
Dundee United have only collected 1 win and 3 draws from the last six home games played. The The Terrors's have scored 7 goals in these games, but conceded an alarming 8.
Hearts's away form is none too clever either, accumulating just 1 victory and 1 draw from their last six played. While the Jambo's have hit 4 goals, 8 have hit the back of the wrong net.
Dundee Utd. are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 5 points from 6 matches. Hearts find themselves in a respectable 3rd position, courtesy of the 12 points they have accumulated from 6 games.

FootyMad's prediction ...
Its been a distinctly poor show from Dundee Utd. at home in recent games, and, though I cannot see a run starting here, I do think the The Terrors will at least gain a draw. Score draw
