Can Aberdeen make a late dash to get into the top six?

The Dons have finished second, third or fourth in each of the last eight seasons, but are currently down in tenth, on course for their lowest finish since 2004.

Last time out, Jim Goodwin’s men held out for so long but conceded with just nine minutes remaining so lost 1-0 to Rangers.

Overall, Goodwin has now failed to win any of his four matches in charge with Aberdeen winless in ten overall, dating back to Boxing Day.

So, the Reds are tenth, four points below Ross County in sixth.

After this, they travel to bottom of the table Dundee before hosting the Staggies in their final pre-split fixture.

If Goodwin’s side are to sneak into the top half, they probably need at least seven points from those three games.

Hibernian meanwhile are fourth but, given that they’re just one point clear of ninth, are far from guaranteed a top half finish.

The Hibees’ last three Premiership games have all ended goalless, against Celtic, Dundee and, most recently, St Johnstone.

So, right now, Hibs are in a guaranteed European spot but need wins to stay in contention for continental football.

Since those bore draws, last Sunday to be precise, Shaun Maloney’s men have beaten Motherwell in the Scottish Cup at Fir Park.

The home side were reduced to ten-men just 58 seconds in with Elias Hoff Melkersen taking advantage, scoring a brace in the 2-1 win.

Hibs will now play Hearts in the semi-finals at Hampden with Celtic taking on Rangers 24 hours later at the National Stadium.

Back in the Premiership, who will claim three vital points at Pittodrie?

Jim Goodwin is without defenders Michael Devlin, Andy Considine and Adam Montgomery all due to injury.

Jonny Hayes will therefore continue at left-back but Calvin Ramsay could return on the right with Funso Ojo back in midfield.

Lewis Ferguson, who was included in the Scotland squad this week, will be looking to support top-scorer Christian Ramirez.

Hibs too have a long injury list with defenders Harry Clarke, Paul Hanlon and Paul McGinn all sidelined.

Rocky Bushiri though is back after serving his suspension against St Johnstone and Motherwell.

Further forward, there’s no Kyle Magennis or Kevin Nisbet; the latter will do well to play again in 2022 after a horrible injury.

But Elias Hoff Melkersen, who scored a brace in his first start last Sunday, could be the answer to Hibs’ goalscorer trials and tribulations.

He, Sylvester Jasper and Ewan Henderson could continue as the front three.
