There is no need for Dundee United fans to panic about Lawrence Shankland’s availability for the start of the season, Courier Sport can confirm.
The Scotland striker was an injury absentee for the Tangerines’ first pre-season friendly at the weekend.
But United’s star man only has a slight thigh strain and will be in Micky Mellon’s squad for the clash with Livingston this Saturday.
Like Shankland, Calum Butcher missed out at Motherwell but he will also be back in the squad for the second friendly ahead of the new season.
Meanwhile, United are waiting to hear news on Benjamin Siegrist.
The keeper injured his knee in training and has had it scanned.
