Aberdeen | Preview

James McPake’s men are back in action this Saturday after the international break, kick off against Aberdeen is at 6pm.

Both sides will be looking to get a win on the board after recent form. Stephen Glass’ men come into the match without a win in any competition in the last nine, losing seven of those.

Last time out they were close to picking up a point against Celtic at Pittodrie but a late goal from Jota meant it was a defeat for The Dons.

It’s a few years since the clubs last met. That outing came in the League Cup with Dundee leading the way thanks to a Danny Johnson penalty, Aberdeen hit back in injury time to take the match to extra time before Sam Cosgrove’s winner after 103 minutes.

Leigh Griffiths, Danny Mullen and Charlie Adam will be assessed ahead of the fixture while Alex Jakubiak will miss out after undergoing surgery on his shoulder injury.
