Dundee United full-back Keith Watson hopes to prove his fitness to play in Sunday's SPL clash with St Mirren at Tannadice.

Watson went off nursing a shoulder injury in the Tayside derby draw against St Johnstone on Boxing Day.

Winger Gary Mackay-Steven is still out after breaking his hand recently while Sean Dillon is set to be sidelined again as he struggles to get over a thigh injury.

St Mirren will be without Kenny McLean, whounderwent minor knee surgery on Friday and is expected to be sidelined for a number of weeks.

Marc McAusland and Jim Goodwin are both back from suspension, while Paul Dummett could also come into contention after missing the Boxing Day draw at Inverness with a muscle complaint.

The 19-year-old full-back signed a first professional contract at Victoria Park in the summer and has penned a fresh deal.

Holden made his debut against Tranmere in April 2011 and has gone on to make 15 senior appearances so far.

The youngster has impressed new boss John Hughes and has subsequently been awarded with the offer.

Official Adam Crysell came to visit the Weston Homes Community Stadium on Friday as did U's boss Joe Dunne and Swindon assistant manager Fabrizio Piccareta.

Speaking to Colchester's official website Crysell described the pitch as 'completely unplayable' and, with further rain forecast, the game was called off.

No new date has been announced.
