Yoann Folly remains a doubt for the Dons.

Midfielder Folly picked up an ankle injury in the 4-2 win over Hibernian last weekend and missed the midweek Co-operative Insurance Cup quarter-final defeat of Falkirk.

Zander Diamond recovered from a similar problem to play in midweek, but Andy Considine (knee) and Nikola Vujadinovic (hamstring) are still struggling and Peter Pawlett (broken toe) and long-term casualty Fraser Fyvie are out.

Buddies boss Danny Lennon has an unchanged pool to choose from for the visit of the Dons.

But Paul Gallacher (knee), Steven Thomson (calf), David Barron (knee), Craig Dargo (knee) and Sean Lynch (knock) are all within a week or two of returns.

Dargo has received an injection, which has speeded up his recovery.

St Mirren (from): Samson, van Zanten, Potter, McGregor, Travner, Cregg, McLean, Murray, Higdon, McGowan, Wardlaw, Mathers, Brady, Mooy, McAusland, McQuade, McLennan, McCluskey.

Aberdeen (from): Howard, Diamond, Considine, McArdle, Folly, Aluko, Hartley, Jack, Vernon, Velicka, Mackie, Maguire, Fraser, Ifil, Young, Paton, Magennis, Langfield, Vujadinovic.
