Dundee United goalkeeper Benjamin Siegrist is likely to miss the trip to Cappielow.
The Tangerines travel to Greenock tomorrow to take on Morton with the goal of restoring some battered pride after that 5-0 home hammering from Ayr United.
They would have loved to have had the Swiss goalie fit and ready but it is odds-on that he will sit it out.
Siegrist damaged his side during Friday’s fright night and was replaced by Matej Rakovan in the unlucky 13th minute.
United boss Robbie Neilson said: “Siegrist hasn’t trained all week and we will have another look at him before Saturday.
“When he landed he stretched and suffered a spasm in his side so we’ve been waiting on it settling down a wee bit.
“The nature of the injury means he probably won’t make the game.”
Given the nature and magnitude of the Ayr loss, Neilson believes all anyone is interested in as regards his players is whether they will be able to bounce back.
He said: “You can talk the talk and say that training has been great and the boys have been looking sharp but nobody cares.
“All anybody is interested in is what happens at Cappielow – that’s it.
“We need to focus on that.
“We have looked at the negatives from last Friday but there were also some positives to take from the game.
“We lost an early goal, which was disappointing, but then actually played some good football at times and made chances, although we didn’t manage to take them.
“We then lost the game in a manner we wouldn’t have like to have lost it.
“We want to go down there and play football because I think that’s very important to us.
“The style of play we have produced in previous games has been very good and suits our players.
“I think in the Ayr game we got drawn into the way they play a bit and we went more direct, which wasn’t what we wanted to do.
“Yes, the result is the most important thing but to get it we need to give ourselves the best opportunity and we will do that by playing football.
“We also have to understand that we are going to get beaten sometimes – it’s how you respond to defeat that matters.
“If you look at the period covering the Partick game to now the form is Championship-winning form.
“If we continue in the manner we have been during that period, albeit we have just had a very disappointing result, we will give ourselves a very good chance of challenging.
“We have to put the Ayr result in perspective.”
