Dundee United boss Robbie Neilson insists absolutely no chances will be taken with players carrying knocks ahead of the promotion play-offs.
The Tangerines made it three wins on the bounce on Saturday thanks to a 2-0 victory over relegation-haunted Falkirk at Tannadice.
Two first-half goals from the recalled Rachid Bouhenna and Paul McMullan sealed the points.
The latter received treatment on the pitch before being substituted in the 63rd minute while the former had replaced Mark Connolly in the starting line-up with the defender missing from the squad altogether along with Peter Pawlett.
But Neilson insisted their absence along with the decision to withdraw McMullan were just precautionary measures.
The manager said: “Paul has had a wee groin problem the last few weeks so although we started him it got to that point where we just thought we would get him off and rested so we will see how he is for next week.
“Both (Connolly and Pawlett) had wee issues that we felt weren’t worth risking but the two of them should be ready for next week.”
Neilson praised Bouhenna for his overall contribution that included a fine defensive performance as well as what was his first goal for the club.
The manager added: “I thought he did well.
“Rachid and Freddy Frans were actually speaking during the week, saying that they hadn’t scored a goal yet.
“He was trying to claim one from the reserve game at Dens Park so he will be delighted to get off the mark.
“But it is pleasing as he can cover at centre-half, centre midfield and right-back.
“As we go into this vital stage of the season, it is important that the guys who come in do a job and are ready to go.”
