Match preview

Dundee United vs Heart of Midlothian betting tips: Scottish Premiership preview, predictions and odds

EDINBURGH, SCOTLAND – JULY 31: Gary Mackay-Steven of Heart of Midlothian celebrates scoring his team’s first goal during the Ladbrokes Scottish Premiership match between Heart of Midlothian and Celtic at Tynecastle Park on July 31, 2021 in Edinburgh, Scotland. (Photo by Steve Welsh/Getty Images)

Heart of Midlothian are firmly back on track as they look to cement third place.

On Wednesday night, a volley from John Souttar followed by a Stephen Kingsley header saw Hearts beat Aberdeen 2-0 at Tynecastle.

This means Robbie Neilson’s side have won both matches this week, both 2-0, after a victory at St Mirren Park last Saturday.

Before this, the Jambos had endured their first blip of the season, losing three in-a-row after a goalless draw in the Edinburgh Derby.

Nevertheless, they’re now 12 points clear in third with that positition, almost certainly, guaranteeing European group stage football next season.

Will Hearts now win three on the bounce for the first time since January?

Dundee United are also hopeful of returning to UEFA competition for the first time in a decade.

The Tangerines though were beaten 2-1 at the Tony Macaroni Arena by Livingston in midweek, despite taking a second minute lead through Liam Smith.

Before this, Tam Courts’ side were unbeaten in five, although four of these matches had ended in draws.

So, the Arabs are sixth, two points off fourth but only three points clear of tenth; it’s going to be a tight top-six race before the split on 9 April.

Will there be a winner at Tannadice?

Just 13 minutes into Wednesday’s defeat, big-money signing Tony Watt hobbled off at Almondvale and the severity of his injury is yet unknown.

If he isn’t fit, Mark McNulty’s partner up front is likely to be Nicky Clark.

Elsewhere, Liam Smith’s goal in that one should see him keep his place in midfield, alongside Callum Butcher and Ian Harkes.

No such concerns for Hearts who’ve got the majority of their players available, with the exception of Michael Smith, meaning Nathaniel Atkinson will continue at right-back.

Josh Ginnelly has been on the bench lately but could return to the XI here, in place of Barrie McKay.

Liam Boyce will continue up front alongside January loan signing from Everton Ellis Simms.
