Aberdeen have no fresh injury worries ahead of their game against Hibernian.
But boss Craig Brown will still be without a number of players with Rory Fallon, Rob Milsom, Clark Robertson, Stephen Hughes and Yoann Folly still sidelined.
The visit of the Edinburgh side is also likely to come too soon for Isaac Osbourne and Peter Pawlett.
Hibs captain James McPake and striker Garry O'Connor could join midfielder Lewis Stevenson in missing the game.
Stevenson will serve a suspension after he was sent off in Sunday's loss at St Mirren which leaves Hibs three points clear of Dunfermline in the Scottish Premier League table ahead of the Pittodrie fixture.
Defender McPake (groin) and top scorer O'Connor (foot) are doubtful, while winger Danny Galbraith (groin) is out.
Aberdeen (from): Langfield, Considine, Reynolds, Anderson, Clark, McManus, Rae, Jack, Fyvie, Vernon, Masson, Magennis, Megginson, Mackie, Smith, Arnason, Rogers, McArdle.
Hibs (from): Brown, McPake, Kujabi, Hanlon, Doherty, Towell, Soares, Sproule, Osbourne, Griffiths, O'Donovan, O'Connor, Doyle, Francomb, Grant, Claros, O'Hanlon, Murray, Wotherspoon.
