Aberdeen manager Mark McGhee has no fresh injury worries ahead of the clash with Hibs.
The visit of the Edinburgh side is likely to come too soon for Nikola Vujadinovic, who is recovering from a hamstring injury.
Peter Pawlett is still out with a broken toe, while long-term casualty Fraser Fyvie also remains on the sidelines.
Ian Murray could return for Hibs as he has been training for two weeks after shaking off a lingering hip injury.
New manager Colin Calderwood has no fresh injury problems but Darryl Duffy (metatarsal) and Merouane Zemmama (knee) remain out.
