Stirling Albion vs Aberdeen match preview

Having come through the League Cup group stages for the first time since its introduction in 2016, Stirling Albion have been rewarded with this glamour Friday night tie.

Against the odds, Stirling came through Group A as the best-ranked group runner-up, accumulating ten points, most-notable smashing St Johnstone 4-0 at McDiarmid Park in their final fixture.

More broadly, 2023 has been a dream year for the Binos, who won the League Two title last season, ending their eight-year stay in the fourth-tier.

Things just keep getting better and better for Darren Young’s team, who’ve began the new League One season with two wins out of two, defeating both Edinburgh City and then Alloa Athletic 1-0.

Dale Carrick converting a late penalty at the Recreation Grounds on Saturday.

Thus, Stirling Albion came into this tie full of confidence so, roared on by a sell-out crowd, can they reach the League Cup quarter-finals for the first time in 25 years?

Aberdeen meantime begin their League Cup campaign here, given that they are one of Scotland’s European representatives.

The Dons are six-times winners of this competition, most-recently defeating Caley Thistle in the 2014 final, subsequently beaten by Celtic in the finals of 2017 and 2019.

Barry Robson’s side were on fire towards the end of last season, following his appointment, enjoying a run of seven successive Premiership victories, form that saw the Reds surge into third place.

As a result, Aberdeen are preparing for a Europa League play-off tie against BK Häcken, with the first leg to come in Göteborg on Thursday, but, before then, are still seeking a first victory of the campaign here.

So far, the Dons have been held to a goalless draw by Livingston at Almondvale, before a 3-1 defeat at the hands of Celtic, a game in which Aberdeen were excellent, but were still beaten by the champions at Pittodrie.

The away side should be far too strong at Forthbank Stadium but, having been knocked out the Scottish Cup by Darvel earlier, Aberdeen supporters will be taking absolutely nothing for granted.
