Midfielder Danny Swanson also made the trip to Greece after a recent Achilles injury but is unlikely to start.
Strikers Jon Daly and David Goodwillie are likely to continue in attack for the game, moved to Georgios Karaiskakis Stadium after the original venue, the Olympic Stadium, was deemed unsafe. AEK’s supporters will not be allowed into the ground due to fears of fan violence.
