Only some of the nine players who were instructed to self-isolate are back with the Tangerines squad.

Dundee United are still affected by Covid-19 issues ahead of the visit of Scottish Premiership leaders Rangers.

Only some of the nine players who were instructed to self-isolate are back with the squad. The likes of Paul McMullan, Nicky Clark, Luke Bolton and Jamie Robson missed last weekend's defeat at Livingston.

Calum Butcher is free from suspension while Logan Chalmers (knee) and Peter Pawlett (groin) are injured.

Ryan Jack and Filip Helander will rejoin the Rangers squad after being left out of the travelling party which won in Poland on Thursday night.

Jack (knee) and Helander (coronavirus) were in the running to feature in the Europa League clash with Lech Poznan but boss Steven Gerrard opted to keep them fresh to face United. Kemar Roofe and Steven Davis were also given the night off and could return to face Micky Mellon's team.

Jermain Defoe – who is not part of the Light Blues' European squad – is also available again but George Edmundson and Jordan Jones are suspended while Nikola Katic (knee) remains out long term.

Sunday's key events


GOLF
· The men's golf reaches its conclusion, with plenty of players still in medal contention. Home favourite Hideki Matsuyama is one shot off Xander Schauffele's lead, while Great Britain's Paul Casey is another shot further back and Tommy Fleetwood is also in the mix (11.30pm-8am)

CYCLING - BMX
· Great Britain have already made history in the BMX events in Tokyo, something Charlotte Worthington and Declan Brooks will be looking to add to in the women's (2.10am) and men's (3.10am) freestyle finals

SWIMMING
· The final day of swimming action begins with the men's 50m freestyle final. Ben Proud could add to a medal-laden Games in the pool for Team GB so far, although he is up against USA's Caeleb Dressel, who is going for his fourth gold in Tokyo (2.30am)
· From sprint to endurance, Great Britain's second medal hope of the day comes through Daniel Jervis in the men's 1500m freestyle final (2.44am)
· Team GB will again be among the heavy favourites for gold in the last swimming event of the Games - the men's 4x100m medley relay final - having won the mixed event in a world record time on Saturday (3.36am)

BOXING
· Already guaranteed at least a bronze, Pat McCormack takes part in the men's welterweight semi-final against Ireland's Aidan Walsh with a spot in the gold medal final at stake (4.03am)
· Ben Whittaker is also in the semi-finals of the men's light heavyweight and will be looking to continue Team GB's success in the ring (4.51am)

TENNIS
· There will be a surprise on the top of the men's tennis podium after Novak Djokovic missed out on a medal altogether. Alexander Zverev takes on Karen Khachanov in the second match on Centre Court at the Ariake Tennis Park (7am-2pm)

SAILING
· Alison Young will be going for gold in the women's laser radial medal race (7.33am)

ARTISTIC GYMNASTICS
· Team GB's Max Whitlock will look to defend his 2016 Olympic title in the men's pommel horse final (10.41am)

ATHLETICS
· The men's high jump final includes GB's Tom Gale, although his chances of a medal look bleak (11.10am)
· So often the blue-riband event of the Olympics, the men's 100m final takes place as the world's fastest bid to be crowned Usain Bolt's successor. Three Brits have made it into the semi-finals (11.15am-11.32am), and the final looks wide open after an underwhelming display by favourite Trayvon Bromell on Saturday (1.50pm)

HOCKEY
· Great Britain face India in the men's quarter-final (1pm)
