A pivotal game in the dons season, anything but a win could see them in a precarious position with regards Europe and even the top six…
Jimmy Calderwood told the EE:
“We know what to expect from Inverness as they will be solid with two banks of four and hit us on the counter-attack.
Aberdeen Team News:
Aberdeen are without Zander Diamond. Jimmy Cadlwerwood spoke to the EE of Big Zander’s injury:
“Zander will definitely miss the Caley game, which is a blow.”
“Club physio John Sharp has ruled him unfit for Caley although we do not think it will be a long term injury.
“It is too early to say if he will be okay for Celtic at Parkhead next week.
“It is a game where big Zander would be important but it is not to be and we have just got to get on with it.”
Andrew Considine will also miss the game (through suspension), which will cause one or two defensive headaches for Jimmy Calderwood. Mark Kerr is also suspended. Darren Makcie and Tommy Wright return after injury.
Player to watch: Chris Maguire
Having scored Aberdeen’s last two goals and been on form for Scotland under 21’s will Maguire start up front even after the return of Mackie and Wright?
Inverness Team News:
ex- Aberdeen goalkeeper Ryan Esson returns to the Caly team.
Player to watch: Andrew Barrowman
Scored at Pittodrie on the opening day and may fancy his chances again with Diamond and Considie both out.
