Rory Fallon comes into the Aberdeen team for the visit of Killie.

The New Zealand international joined the club in midweek following a successful trial.

Full-back Ryan Jack has recovered from the head injury that kept him out of the squad that drew at Hibernian.

Kilmarnock manager Kenny Shiels has no fresh injury concerns.

Danny Buijs (hamstring) and Mohamadou Sissoko, who is not yet match fit, are unlikely to make the trip to Pittodrie but could be involved in next week's Scottish Communities League Cup tie against Queen of the South.

Ryan O'Leary (cruciate ligament) and David Silva (knee) remain on the sidelines.

Aberdeen (from): Jason Brown, Foster, Considine, Arnason, Mawene, Magennis, Fallon, Milsom, Osbourne, Pawlett, Megginson, Vernon, Chalali, Mackie, McArdle, Clark, Fyvie, Folly.

Kilmarnock (from): Bell, McKeown, Fowler, Kroca, Pursehouse, Harkins, Fisher, Shiels, Dayton, Galan, Pascali, Kelly, Racchi, Heffernan, Letheren, Hutchinson, Hay, Panikvar.
