Aberdeen boss Derek McInnes has been handed a boost as Bristol City loanee Marley Watkins and Leeds United loanee Ryan Edmondson have been passed fit for the weekend.
The pair both suffered knocks against Celtic in a 3-3 draw last weekend. Watkins picked up a hamstring problem whilst Edmondson got himself a minor concussion after a challenge with Shane Duffy.
But both men will be fit for Sunday’s match at Hampden. Aberdeen take to Scottish Cup semi-final action against Celtic, needing to cause an upset to book their place in a domestic cup final.
Both Edmondson and Watkins have impressed since arriving from Leeds United and Bristol City. Edmondson scored his first Dons goals a few weeks ago since the move from Leeds whilst Watkins has provided a physical presence in the final third.
McInnes has provided an update on both, saying they both should make Sunday’s showpiece event: “Marley Watkins will train Thursday and Friday and will be ok. He had a hamstring problem but the scan was clear.
“Young Ryan Edmondson will not train until Friday. He took a sore one when he got smashed into the boards but he will be ok.
“We have players in good form. We have players who are playing at a good level at the moment. The team has been pretty consistent with the way we have set up.
“The last few weeks there has been a few decisions to make with a couple of players but in the main it has been the same players who have been involved, the same team, the same shape over the last while.”
