St Johnstone are hopeful of having Cillian Sheridan in the squad.

Saints are awaiting clearance for the striker, who has joined on loan from CSKA Sofia.

Goalkeeper Alan Mannus will be added to the squad after completing his move to the Perth club following his departure from Shamrock Rovers.

Arnason has played some pre-season games for the Dons and Craig Brown was assessing his fitness before making a decision.

Jamie Langfield is still recovering from illness, Chris Clark is injured and Joe Shaughnessy is away with the Republic of Ireland youths but Brown otherwise has a full squad.

Aberdeen (from): Gonzalez, Foster, Considine, McArdle, Mawene, Considine, Milsom, Jack, Pawlett, Paton, Fyvie, Folly, Arnason, Vernon, Mackie, Magennis, Osborne, Brown.

St Johnstone (from): Enckelman, MacKay, Anderson, Adams, Craig, M Davidson, Millar, May, Reynolds, C Davidson, Robertson, Higgins, Wright, McCracken, Finnigan, Sheridan, Mannus, McIntosh.
