Barry Robson has named his Aberdeen team for their final Conference League game of the season.

The Dons host German side Eintracht Frankfurt at Pittodrie in matchday six of the group stage campaign as they look to pick up their first win.

Despite some impressive performances in their first five group games, Aberdeen are out of Europe no matter the result on Thursday night.

So they could have one eye on Sunday’s League Cup final against Rangers at Hampden when they take to the field.

After running Eintracht close in Frankfurt, in a game they narrowly lost 2-1, they drew twice with HJK Helsinki and once with group leaders PAOK in Greece.

They were also minutes away from getting all three points from their home game against PAOK and where leading the game 2-0 with less than 15 minutes to go before a late collapse and injury time penalty saw them lose 3-2.

But they will know a tough task awaits against a Frankfurt side who beat German giants Bayern Munich 5-1 in their last game.

Robson has made eight changes from the team that defeated Hearts 2-1 at the weekend with Devlin, Jensen, Clarkson, Shinnie, McGrath, Hayes, Sokler and Miovski all dropping out.

He has started with Roos in goals behind a backline of Rubezic, Gartenmann and MacDonald with Jack Milne and James McGarry in the wing-back roles.

Dante Polvara, Connor Barron and Ryan Duncan make up a three-man midfield with Shayden Morris supporting Duk in attack.
