Dundee United winger Craig Conway has been given the all-clear to return to training after a knee scare.

The Scotland international has been out for three weeks with a medial ligament strain and broke down on Tuesday, promoting the club to send him for a scan.

The scan showed no serious damage to the knee, meaning Conway is available again for selection, although manager Peter Houston does not think he will feature this weekend.

United tackle Kilmarnock at Rugby Park, but Houston believes Conway is unlikely to make his first-team return until after the international break.

Nothing serious

"The scan showed there is nothing too serious there," said Houston.

"He won't make this Saturday but might well be back after the international break. That's what we are hoping for although we can't be certain at this stage.

"He's still training on his own, doing bits and pieces, but isn't able to play in a game at this stage. He is frustrated at not being able to train with the team.

"But he'll work hard on what he can do and get treatment on the knee."


United will have central defender Garry Kenneth back after he was stretchered off with three separate head injuries against St Johnstone last weekend.

Houston continued: "Garry Kenneth is fine. He got a couple of bad head gashes but he gets his stitches out (on Friday) and we'll wrap the main wound up to protect him for the game.

"Fair play to the big man, he's not wanted to miss a minute of training and that's the attitude we want. To be fair the whole team showed the right attitude in what was a tough match with St Johnstone."
