Ross County v Aberdeen preview

Ross County will have midfielder Alex Cooper back in the squad when they play Aberdeen in the Scottish Premiership.

And Cooper may be handed a starting place against the high-flying Dons following his recent suspension.

Marc Klok and fellow midfielder Stuart Kettlewell have not recovered from recent injury problems.

Manager Derek Adams is also without striker Darren Maatsen and goalkeeper Michael Fraser for the game.

Aberdeen will again be without Peter Pawlett when they make the trip across to Dingwall on Tuesday.

Pawlett is still recovering from a hip problem but the Dons are hopeful he will be back in contention for this weekend's game with Dundee United.

Jonny Hayes is still out of action after suffering a collarbone injury in the Scottish League Cup final victory against Inverness Caley.

Midfielder Barry Robson could return into the starting line-up after he was rested for the first hour of Saturday's 2-1 victory over Kilmarnock.
