Venue Pit­to­drie Ref­eree Last league meet­ing To­mor­row 3pm Venue Tynecas­tle Ref­eree Craig Thom­son Odds H 6/ 5, A 11/5, D 12/5 Last league meet­ing Hearts 0 Dundee United 0 (5 May) Scots­man pre­dic­tion Hearts 3 Dundee United 1

KEY CLASH: KEVIN KYLE V GARRY KEN­NETH Kyle has scored in each of his last two out­ings for Hearts and, in the likely event that he keeps his place in the start­ing line-up, the hulk­ing for­ward will be hop­ing to make life dif­fi­cult for Ken­neth, the highly-rated Dundee United cen­tre-back who has suf­fered a pair of har­row­ing ex­pe­ri­ences against Swe­den and In­ver­ness in re­cent weeks. ABERDEEN Subs from: Lang­field, Young, Ver­non, Fos­ter, Meg­gin­son, Jack, Pa­ton. Team news: Fraser Fyvie and Sone Aluko are both out, while Peter Pawlett is back in con­tention af­ter Mark McGhee left him out at Al­loa over con­cerns about the ar­ti­fi­cial sur­face.

To­day 3pm Brian Win­ter Odds H 19/20, A 14/5, D 12/5 Key bat­tle Paul Hart­ley v James Fowler Aberdeen 1 Kil­marnock 2 (5 May) Scots­man pre­dic­tion Aberdeen 2 Kil­marnock 2 Hearts failed to score a sin­gle goal in four meet­ings with Dundee United last sea­son but go into to­mor­row’s clash full of con­fi­dence fol­low­ing back-to-back 4-0 wins. Calum El­liot has a new lease of life and the ar­rival of Kevin Kyle has given Hearts a fresh po­tency up front. If El­liot can shake off an in­jury Hearts should be too strong for a United side still seek­ing their first win of the sea­son.

HEARTS Subs from: Balogh, Mrowiec, J Thom­son, Robin­son, Noviko­vas, Barr, El­liot, El­liott. Team news: Ruben Palazue­los, Andy Driver, Gary Glen and David Obua are out, while Calum El­liot, Mar­ius Zal­iukas, Lee Wal­lace, Dar­ren Barr, Stephen El­liott and David Obua are doubts. DUNDEE UNITED Subs from: Banks, Men­tel, Dou­glas, D Robert­son, Swan­son, Cadamar­teri, Casal­in­uovo, Shala, Rus­sell. Team news: Jon Daly and David Good­willie will re­turn to the start­ing line-up af­ter start­ing on the bench in Athens. Danny Cadamar­teri is a doubt af­ter pick­ing up a mus­cle strain, but mid­fielder Danny Swan­son is avail­able.
