The Scottish Premier is back in action this midweek with two sides without any defeats locking horns at Tannadice. Each side hopes to carry on the streak with the match scheduling for Tuesday with kickoff at 8 pm.
Dundee United will be heading into the match after picking four points since the opening of the Scottish Premiership. The visiting side is on a two-match winning streak picking up six points in the process.
Hibernian rejoiced the starting of the Scottish Premiership with fair fixtures that have elevated the side. Jack Gross’s side netted five of their last six goals in the first half. The side has had a spur of brilliance in the matches proving the side to be a threat.
Kevin Nisbet has been in-form managing to secure a hat-trick in the last outing. Other reliving figures within the team are that five other players have either registered a goal or an assist in the two matches.
Dundee United stayed four years out of the top flight. With Mecky Mellon taking the helm of the side, the team looks solid in avoiding another relegation side. In-form Lawrence Shankland has been the highlight for the side. However, Mellon will have to look for another attacking threat in case the star succumbs to an injury.

Dundee Team News
With only three days since their last fixture, the side will be looking to keep an eye of wunderkind Lawrence Shankland. The star recently picked a minor muscular injury and will not be risked ahead of the match.
Hibernian Team News
Following their last win against Motherwell, Ross will be looking to maintain the same starting XI ahead of the clash. We expect a change of formation with three at the back, paving the way for Scott Allan to find his way back to the team.
