Motherwell v Aberdeen preview

Motherwell have no fresh injuries ahead of their SPL clash with Aberdeen at Fir Park on Boxing Day.

Well boss Stuart McCall is likely to name a similar squad to the one who lost to St Mirren on Friday night.

Defender Steven Saunders is continuing his recovery from knee surgery but is unlikely to return to first-team action until early in the New Year.

Aberdeen goalkeeper Jamie Langfield is available after suspension, and Andrew Considine has recovered from a virus.

Jonny Hayes trained on Monday after missing Saturday's win over St Johnstone with a knock and manager Craig Brown said both Stephen Hughes and Ryan Fraser have a chance of returning from injury.

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