Aberdeen have full-back Shay Logan and midfielder Barry Robson available again for the trip following suspension and a hip injury respectively.
Willo Flood, Russell Anderson and Clark Robertson all remain sidelined for the visitors.
Dundee are waiting on the fitness of Greg Stewart ahead of Saturday's Scottish Cup fourth-round tie against Aberdeen at Dens Park (kick-off 12.15pm).
The influential striker is struggling to prove he has shaken off the knock sustained during the 2-1 defeat at Celtic last Saturday and manager Paul Hartley will make a late decision on his selection.
The Scottish Premiership clash between the two teams earlier in the season was a thriller, with the Dons edging their way to the points 3-2 - the same scoreline by which they beat Dundee the last time the teams met in the Scottish Cup back in 2004.
