Aberdeen are set for a double injury boost when they return from the international break with Shay Logan and Dean Campbell looking likely to make their comebacks.

The Pittodrie duo have been out of the side recently and Dons boss Derek McInnes confirmed both could be fit for next weekend’s clash with St. Johnstone.

Campbell has been suffering from a hip injury while Logan underwent minor surgery on a groin issue and McInnes admitted he was under “medical instruction” to miss the previous game with Ross County.

“I think Shay will be all right for St Johnstone,” McInnes said, as quoted by the Evening Express.


“Under medical instruction he was advised not to play against Ross County.

“Hopefully we can get him back in contact training in the week building up to St Johnstone.

“Dean Campbell will hopefully be fit for St Johnstone.”

The Dons have struggled for numbers defensively this season as injuries have taken their toll, with Scott McKenna and Ash Taylor, likely to remain on the sidelines against the Saints so Logan’s return will be particularly welcomed.

McInnes side had hoped Taylor would also be back in time for the St. Johnstone clash but has suffered a set back in his recovery.

Aberdeen are currently sitting fourth in the Scottish Premiership table ahead of their meeting with the struggling Saints and McInnes’ side will be looking for a solid win after an up-and-down start to the campaign.
