Vital Quotes:

Jimmy Calderwood spoke to Red Tv:
‘Saturday’s game is massive for us and if we beat United we go ahead of them in the league and the puts us in a good position as they face Hearts next week. I think United would be more happy with a point from the game than we would be and we will be going all out to get all the points’

He also dubiously added that ‘United will be taking up a big crowd’ and added ‘it will be a great atmosphere and it could be heading for 15 or 16 thousand and that always makes the difference’

Aberdeen Team News:

News paper reports saying Zander Diamond would be out for a year were proved to be complete fiction, as the central defender has trained today and will face United at the weekend. Darren Mackie is also fit. Which leaves only 3 players out: Gary McDonald, Andrew Considine and Jamie Smith.
