Dundee boss James McPake will have almost a full squad to choose from for tonight’s derby clash.
The Dark Blues welcome Dundee United to Dens Park for the first time in more than two years for this evening’s 7.45pm kick-off.
And the home side have no fresh injury concerns for the big Championship contest.
Left-back Jordan Marshall was the big worry after he limped off early in last Friday’s home win over Greenock Morton.
However, he has been cleared to play while Marshall’s former Queen of the South team-mate Josh Todd is the only doubt for tonight.
The versatile midfielder picked up a nasty cut two weeks ago at Ayr United and it will be touch and go whether he is able to return to first-team duties.
The Dens gaffer said: “Jordan Marshall is OK to play but Josh Todd is still a concern.
“He has trained but the stitches are in an awkward place on his ankle bone and it’s about how much he can tolerate.
“Other than those two we only have Jack Hamilton out. Jack is getting better, he’s more comfortable after his appendix surgery but he’s still at home.
“We are refreshed after three games in a week last week.”
Meanwhile, James says his players must learn from their last derby experience.
The Dundee boss says an inability to defend their box saw the Tangerines rack up a massive 6-2 victory.
And he’s urged his players to be aware of that before tonight’s clash.
“The last time we didn’t defend our box well but we have been relatively strong on that,” he added.
“We lost the game on that, not because we were out-played.
“It sounds daft because of the convincing scoreline but it came down to them defending their box better than us.
“We need to be aware of that tonight and we will be. There are plenty characters in our squad and that game hurt them.

“We needed to pick them up because we were only three games into a season.
“You are going to lose games but the manner you do sometimes hurts more than others and that was one.
“There was never a question things were going to go downhill from there because I knew exactly the type of characters in my squad.”
