Match Preview: Aberdeen v Saints

Friday 29th September

Saints make the trip to the north east tomorrow as they take on Aberdeen at Pittodrie in the Scottish Premiership.

With Saints sitting three points behind the Dons in third, the sides head into the match chasing down Celtic at the top of the league standings.

Tommy Wright will be looking for his side to kick on from a hard-fought victory over Hamilton last weekend, where Saints recovered from going a goal down to snatch a 2-1 win while Derek McInnes' Aberdeen side remain one of the league's two unbeaten teams after the opening seven games.

Injury doubts to Michael O'Halloran and Richard Foster will likely be the two main concerns heading into the match for Tommy Wright. An ankle knock kept O'Halloran out of last weekend's win over Hamilton while a calf injury forced Foster to be substituted during the match itself.

Tommy is looking forward to the match, saying: “We have a decent record at Pittodrie but Derek has his players performing consistency well again and apart from the cup exit at Motherwell they have made a great start to the season. They made some valuable additions to their squad over the summer and of course we know what Stevie May can do. It’s great to see him playing regularly again but it’s up to use to stop him tomorrow.”

Across the four league meetings last season, the two teams could not be separated. After two goalless draws in the pair's first two clashes, each side picked up an away win in the following two encounters. Saints ran out winners when the sides last met in late April thanks a 2-0 in the granite city.
