Dundee v Aberdeen preview

Dundee midfielders Nicky Riley and Iain Davidson return from injury and suspension respectively for Saturday's SPL clash with Aberdeen at Dens Park.

Skipper Stephen O'Donnell has suffered no adverse reaction to his long-awaited comeback from a hamstring injury midweek and Lewis Toshney is free to play after being ineligible for the game against his parent club.

But the hosts are still without Steven Milne (stomach), Davide Grassi, Carl Finnigan, Mark Kerr (all knee) and Jamie McLuskey (Achilles).

Aberdeen have Stephen Hughes, Rob Milsom and Ryan Fraser available following injury.

The midfielder trio have been added to the squad for the trip to Dens Park after spending a number of weeks out of contention.

Ryan Jack, Rob Milsom, Chris Clark, Gary Naysmith and Isaac Osbourne remain out of action.
