Aberdeen keeper Joe Lewis was today set to make his comeback against St Johnstone after two months out injured – but winger Niall McGinn was ruled out for the league clash.
Lewis, 30, has been sidelined since undergoing knee surgery after suffering cartilage damage in a 2-0 loss to Rangers in late January.
The former England squad keeper sailed through training this week. McInnes said: “Joe is good to go.
“He played a development game at St Mirren about 10 days ago.
“Joe has trained great this week.
“It is great to have him back as he has always been a big influence on the team.
“Even having that influence back on the training pitch is good.”
Northern Ireland international winger McGinn is out with a groin injury that forced him to return home early from international duty although he is set to be fit for the Scottish Cup semi.
McInnes said: “Niall is out for the St Johnstone game but hopefully will just miss one game or maybe two.
“He felt his groin after the game with Dundee and then reported for international duty. They assessed Niall and sent him back.
“We scanned Niall just to make sure and it showed there is a wee issue there that he needs to rest down and stay with the physios for the next week or so.
“I am pretty sure he will be back for the Scottish Cup semi-final.”
