Aberdeen have no new injury concerns, but captain Paul Hartley is out for "the foreseeable future".

Midfielder Hartley suffered a recurrence of his knee injury in a bid to get fit for the Scottish Cup semi-final last Sunday, which the 10-man Dons lost 4-0 to Celtic.

Rory McArdle (shoulder) and David McNamee (hamstring) remain out along with long-term injury victims Yoann Folly, Darren Mackie and Fraser Fyvie.

Hamilton's David Elebert is set to miss out.

A hamstring injury kept Elebert out of last week's win over Hibernian and he is also rated doubtful for Monday's clash.

Defenders Mark McLaughlin and Martin Canning remain on the sidelines ahead of the visit of the Dons.

Hamitlon (from):Murdoch, Buchanan, Kilday, McDonald, Mensing, McAlister, Chambers, Carrington, Crawford, Gillespie, Neil, Imrie, Hasselbaink, Elliott, Skelton, Graham, Cerny, Hopkirk.

Aberdeen (from): Langfield, Diamond, Smith, Aluko, Considine, Vujadinovic, Milsom, Vernon, Blackman, Maguire, Magennis, Howard, Young, Pawlett, Jack, Paton, Anderson, Robertson.
