Hamilton v Aberdeen preview

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,
