Liam Scales will come back into the Aberdeen side for the cinch Premiership tie against St Mirren at Pittodrie on Saturday.

The on-loan defender was unable to play against parent club Celtic in last week’s league opener at Parkhead.

Midfielder Connor Barron (knee) and left-back Jack MacKenzie (thigh) remain out.

St Mirren’s Mark O’Hara will miss the trip to Pittodrie due to concussion protocols.

The Saints midfielder took a head knock against Motherwell last week.

Attacker Greg Kiltie returns from a suspension, Scott Tanser is touch and go with a knock and will be assessed as will fellow defender Marcus Fraser who had the flu.
