Scottish Premiership rivals St Johnstone and Dundee United clash in the Scottish League Cup at McDiarmid Park on Tuesday. Both sides have two wins in the competition and are on course for qualification, this game could decide who tops Group C.

St Johnstone Form 


St Johnstone have enjoyed a run of four wins in their last five games across the Scottish Premiership and Scottish League Cup. Callum Davidson's side started their cup campaign with a 2-1 win over Kelty Hearts and followed that with a 7-0 thrashing of Brechin City. 

Stevie May grabbed a hat-trick against Brechin City, and he was on the scoresheet twice against Hamilton back in Scottish Premiership action. The Saints were 5-3 winners over Hamilton, although that haul represents half of their 10 league goals from 13 games played.

It was back to a more solid St Johnstone in a subsequent 0-0 draw with Dundee United, while they were 1-0 winners at home to Kilmarnock at the weekend thanks to on-loan Danny McNamara's goal.

St Johnstone Team News


Ali McCann will miss the game after being called up for Northern Ireland. His place is likely to go to Craig Bryson, who was dropped to the bench in the win over Kilmarnock.

Dundee United Form


Dundeed United have found scoring goals hard of late with Micky Mellon's side finding the back of the net just three times in their last six matches.

The Terrors have played out three 0-0 draws in their last four games with dull stalemates against Aberdeen, St Johnstone and St Mirren in the Scottish Premiership. Sandwiched in between those was a 2-1 win over Ross County with Nicky Clark getting both goals.

Dundee United have won two of their three League Cup games courtesy of a 6-2 victory over Brechin City and a 1-0 win over Kelty Hearts. But they also lost 1-0 at home to Peterhead. Clark was again at the double against Brechin, while Ryan Edwards netted the winner against Kelty.

Dundee United Team News


Dillon Powers and Marc McNulty both came on from the bench in the weekend draw with St Mirren and could be given a starting chance for Dundee United as Micky Mellon looks for a solution to the goalscoring problems.
