Aberdeen v Hearts preview

Aberdeen will be without Russell Anderson and Ryan Jack for

their final Clydesdale Bank Premier League game of the season at

home to Hearts on Saturday.

Jack has picked up a knock while the club will not risk

Anderson, because he has a tight hamstring and is also one booking

away from a suspension.

Rory Fallon and Peter Pawlett will be absent as well because

they are serving bans at the moment.

Hearts manager Gary Locke is contemplating giving injured

skipper Marius Zaliukas a short run-out.

The Lithuanian defender is close to fitness after an ankle

problem and, as he is out of contract in the summer, he may be

given the chance to wave goodbye to the travelling supporters.

Defenders Darren Barr and Brad Mackay are rated doubtful for the

Pittodrie encounter.
