Sol Bamba is a doubt but Liam Miller is available for Hibs.

Miller's controversial red card in last Saturday's 2-1 loss at Kilmarnock was overturned on appeal and he will now not be suspended for the game with the bottom of the table Dons.

Bamba, meanwhile, suffered a hamstring injury at Rugby Park and could miss out along with long-term absentees Darryl Duffy (foot), Graham Stack (back) and Merouane Zemmama (knee), who are now back in training and could return in the new year.

David McNamee could be among the substitutes for Aberdeen.

McNamee, a free agent after leaving Plymouth, is unlikely to start but could come off the bench for the Dons.

Rory McArdle is available again after missing the 5-0 loss to Hearts through suspension, but Fraser Fyvie and Darren Mackie both remain on the sidelines with long-term knee injuries.

Hibernian (from): Brown, Wotherspoon, Hogg, Bamba, De Graaf, Rankin, Hanlon, Thicot, Trakys, Stevenson, Galbraith, Dickoh, Grounds, Miller, McBride, Murray, Smith, Stephens, Nish, Riordan, Hart, Horner.

Aberdeen (from): Langfield, Ifil, Diamond, Robertson, Folly, Magennis, Aluko, Hartley, Jack, Vernon, Maguire, Young, Howard, Considine, Paton, Vujadinovic, Velicka, Pawlett, McNamee.
