Dons seek Tannadice lift
Scotland star Dodds missed a late penalty for his club last week
Dundee Utd v Aberdeen
The Old Firm play each other on Sunday, leaving the highlight of Saturday's Scottish action bottom-placed Aberdeen's trip to Tannadice.
The home side will be looking to bounce back after Billy Dodds missed a last minute penalty which would have given them a point at Easter Road.
Jan Telesnikov, Steven Thompson and David Partridge have returned to training at United and are back in contention for places.
But Joaquim Ferraz is a doubtful starter as his shoulder injury continues to trouble him.
New signing Cato Gunveit makes his debut for Aberdeen in place of the suspended Paul Bernard while fellow new arrival Juan Cobian is likely to be on the bench.
Hearts v Motherwell
Stevie Woods comes into the Motherwell side in place of injured goalkeeper Andy Goram, who was carried off with a torn calf muscle against St Johnstone last week.
Hearts' only injury worry is over Austrian star Thomas Flogel, who is still suffering from a neck injury.
If he misses out Gary Locke is likely to deputise once again.
Kilmarnock v Hibernian
Martin Baker has been ruled out because of a one-match suspension after being sent off against Celtic last week while Ally McCoist remains a long-term casualty.
Mark Dempsie came back to training on Thursday after suffering from a flu virus.
But manager Alex McLeish is hoping to name the same team for the third successive game.
St Johnstone v Dundee
St Johnstone have been boosted by the return of captain Jim Weir and transfer-listed John O'Neil.
Their claims for a return to the side put pressure on Stuart McCluskey and Keith O'Halloran.
Dundee have again been forced to rule out Robbie Raeside, Willie Miller and Lee Maddison due to injury but skipper Barry Smith is available after returning from injury.
