Motherwell V Aberdeen Will Go Ahead
Motherwell's Ladbrokes Premiership clash with Aberdeen will go ahead after the Lanarkshire club's flu crisis levelled off.
Well boss Mark McGhee revealed on Thursday that they might have to submit a request to the Scottish Professional Football League to postpone the game if more players were struck down by a bug.
But the club will be able to field a team against the title challengers.
Motherwell wrote on their official Twitter account: "Although some are still ill, majority of the squad (who aren't injured) are in to train this morning ahead of Saturday's match with the Dons.
"On that basis, the club have informed the SPFL there will be no requests made and tomorrow's game vs the Dons is good to go.''
Motherwell were forced to postpone a development league game against Celtic on Tuesday after the entire under-20s squad were laid low, and then six first-team players - including Chris Cadden and Ben Hall - showed symptoms on Wednesday.
McGhee already had Stephen Pearson (punctured lung) and Louis Laing (groin) ruled out and both Keith Lasley (thigh) and James McFadden (ankle) are major doubts, while Josh Law and Joe Chalmers have been carrying foot injuries.
But Motherwell go into the game on the back of a three-match winning run and are looking to extend their lead over seventh-placed Dundee to five points.
The Steelmen also host Celtic before the split and McGhee wants to face both title challengers again during the run-in.
"That for me is the thing,'' he said. "I would love to be in the shake-up.
"If we can have a flavour of being in contention then we can certainly be a thorn in people's flesh. I am up for that.''
