St Mirren v Aberdeen preview

Yoann Folly remains a doubt for the Dons. Midfielder Folly picked

up an ankle injury in the 4-2 win over Hibernian last weekend and

missed the midweek Co-operative Insurance Cup quarter-final defeat

of Falkirk. Zander Diamond recovered from a similar problem to play

in midweek, but Andy Considine (knee) and Nikola Vujadinovic

(hamstring) are still struggling and Peter Pawlett (broken toe) and

long-term casualty Fraser Fyvie are out. Buddies boss Danny Lennon

has an unchanged pool to choose from for the visit of the Dons. But

Paul Gallacher (knee), Steven Thomson (calf), David Barron (knee),

Craig Dargo (knee) and Sean Lynch (knock) are all within a week or

two of returns. Dargo has received an injection, which has speeded

up his recovery. St Mirren (from): Samson, van Zanten, Potter,

McGregor, Travner, Cregg, McLean, Murray, Higdon, McGowan, Wardlaw,

Mathers, Brady, Mooy, McAusland, McQuade, McLennan, McCluskey.

Aberdeen (from): Howard, Diamond, Considine, McArdle, Folly, Aluko,

Hartley, Jack, Vernon, Velicka, Mackie, Maguire, Fraser, Ifil,

Young, Paton, Magennis, Langfield, Vujadinovic.
