Meanwhile, Livingston make the trip to Pittodrie on the back of earning a surprise goalless draw at home to leaders Rangers.
After 19 days without a game, Derek McInnes would naturally have had concerns about the fitness of his patched-up squad ahead of their meeting with an improving St Johnstone side on Thursday night.
However, despite nearly three weeks out of action, the Dons responded with a gritty performance, eventually claiming a hard-fought win thanks to a late Ryan Hedges goal.
Despite there being much work ahead, especially in the short term as they play their games in hands, McInnes will be optimistic that the coronavirus misdemeanours in recent weeks can only strengthen the mentality of this group of players.
Although apologetic for not abiding by regulations when attending a city bar, the criticism brought on by the eight players involved could have a galvanising effect with regards to their efforts on the pitch.
Nevertheless, McInnes and his squad must find a way to overcome the difficulties of the short turnaround to take on a Livingston side very much on a high.
While they remain without a victory this season, last Sunday's goalless draw against Rangers answered lingering questions about the resilience of the team's backline.
After witnessing Livingston concede seven goals during their opening three matches, manager Gary Holt could not hide his delight in becoming the first Scottish team to shut out the Glasgow giants this season.
That said, with games against Aberdeen and Ross County in front of them, attention must quickly turn to trying to record maximum points, aware that it could be enough to take the club as high as seventh place by the end of the weekend.
Livingston also have to find a way to cope without star man Lyndon Dykes, who has been allowed to join Queens Park Rangers in a £2m deal.

While McInnes will not want to make too many changes to the team which began in midweek, tiredness will be taken into consideration.
Having coming through 84 minutes on his first outing in a year, Scott Wright may drop down to the substitutes' bench, potentially for Thursday's match-winner Hedges if McInnes uses the Welshman in a more advanced role.
As for Livingston, Robby McCrorie is expected to return in goal after sitting out the contest with parent club Rangers.
Holt has revealed that a number of his players are carrying minor knocks ahead of the game.
Aberdeen possible starting lineup:
Lewis; McCrorie, Taylor, Hoban; Hernandez, Ferguson, Campbell, Ojo, Hayes; Hedges, McGinn
Livingston possible starting lineup:
McCrorie; Devlin, Fitzwater, Guthrie, McMillan; Holt, Bartley; Pittman, Sibbald, Forrest; Hamilton
We say: Aberdeen 1-1 Livingston
Despite the momentum generated from their victory at St Johnstone, some of Aberdeen's squad may be feeling the effects of their first game since the beginning of the season. With that in mind, we feel that Livingston will do enough to earn a share of the spoils, prolonging their unbeaten run in the process.
