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.

The Problem With FA Cup Shocks...

...is that the draw for the next round is pretty shocking. Blackburn v Stoke, anybody? We also have mails on LVG and ManUnited, who drew plenty under Fergie...

You're Man Utd, For Crying Out Loud!

Defending a 0-0 draw with Cambridge on the grounds that other teams lost to lower-league opposition is not befitting of Man United. We're inclined to agree with Mailboxers...
