Aberdeen v Dundee Utd preview
Barry Robson could make his comeback from injury when Aberdeen take on his former club Dundee United at Pittodrie, where Scotland legend Denis Law will be guest of honour.
The midfielder has not played since the 2-1 win over Kilmarnock on the opening day but is closing on a first-team return following knee surgery.
Manager Derek McInnes said: "Certainly, since the start of the week, it's been very encouraging.
"It's early days. We've still got a training session to get through before Saturday's game and we will see how he is then."
Russell Anderson (hand) has missed the last five games and could be involved, but the game is likely to come too soon for Chris Clark (knee).
Josh Magennis is out of action for four weeks after a knee operation, while Calvin Zola is still a doubt with a knock after missing the defeat to Ross County.
United manager Jackie McNamara is hopeful that youngsters Ryan Gauld and John Souttar will be fit to feature at Pittodrie.
They were both on Scotland U19 duty this week and Gauld picked up a knee problem while Souttar was involved in three matches - against Germany, Latvia and Belarus.
McNamara said: "It's quite a lot to ask of them, especially as they've been playing regularly in the first team.
"It's good experience, but this week is different. From my point of view the preparation isn't ideal."
Gary Mackay-Steven is expected to shake off a leg knock, while Morgaro Gomis could be added to the squad after re-signing for the club last week.
