Kilmarnock manager Angelo Alessio: "At the moment it's difficult because we don't have enough good players in some roles."

Aberdeen striker Sam Cosgrove: "Playing Thursday-Sunday is tough, but ultimately it's what we want as players and a club. We want to be playing in as many of these big games as we can."

Hearts manager Craig Levein: "I don't expect Aberdeen to be in any way weakened by their European exploits. It's a tough place to go but I long ago stopped worrying about the fixture list."
