Match preview

Can Aberdeen make a last-ditch attempt to get into the top six?

The Dons have finished second, third or fourth in each of the last eight seasons, but ending up in the bottom half for the first time since 2013 looked a certainty not so long ago.

However, just before the international break, they finally claimed the first win of 2022, and Jim Goodwin's first victory in charge, beating Hibs 3-1.

Then, last weekend, the Dons needed to back that up as they took on bottom of the table Dundee at Dens Park.

Despite leading twice, through Calvin Ramsey and Ross McCrorie, they could only draw 2-2, which was a major set back.

This leaves Aberdeen ninth, two points below Hibernian in sixth, needing to win this match to have any chances of a top six spot.

Ross County meanwhile are also very much in the conversation after they won three on the bounce in February and March.

Last weekend, the Staggies held third-place Hearts to a 1-1 draw in Dingwall with Alex Iacovitti getting on the scoresheet.

So, Malky Mackay's men are seventh, knowing they too probably need a victory to get into the top six for the first time in six years.
