Team news

There was a boost yesterday with news Joe Newell has agreed to a contract extension to keep him at Easter Road for another three years.

Harry Clarke is back in training for Hibs though this weekend’s game might come too soon for the defender signed in the January window who’s yet to feature. Ryan Porteous starts his four-game suspension following his red card last week. Kyle Magennis, Paul McGinn and Demi Mitchell remain sidelined through injury.

Matt Macey is a doubt while Josh Campbell and Sylvester Jasper picked up knocks on international duty, though they were at training on Friday.

Dundee United lowdown

The Terrors will be looking to clinch a place in the top six with a victory, while a draw would go a long way to realising that ambition also. They won last time out, coming from behind to beat St Mirren in Paisley with ex-Hibs striker Mark McNulty scoring a late winner.

Previous meeting

Hibs won 3-1 at Tannadice in the last match before the winter break. Kevin Nisbet, Chris Cadden and the now-departed Jamie Murphy netted in what’s been the most impressive performance under Hibs boss Shaun Maloney to date. Declan Glass scored a consolation for the hosts. Every game this season between the sides has been won by the visiting team, who’ve netted three goals on each occasion.

What Shaun Maloney said

On Joe Newell’s extension: “He’s a real example to the young players we have in the squad, and he can be a big player as we continue to evolve moving forward, striving to achieve our goals.

"The strong competitive side of his game drives the team in the biggest of matches and I believe he can improve even more through the work he is doing with myself and my coaching staff.”
