Vital Quotes:

Aberdeen take on an in form Kilmarnock today at Pittodrie,with both sides hitting a decent spell of form of late.

Killie are fresh off a 1-0 win over Hearts last weekend at Rubgy Park so they should come to Pittodrie full of confidence.As Jim Jefferies is seeing signs that their is life after Kris Boyd !

Aberdeen have already lost to Kilmarnock twice in the league this season,2-1 and 4-2 so they will be hoping that fortune smiles on them this time in what should be a hard but entertaining match.

Killie are 8 points ahead of the Dons,so this is really a must win match for the home side.
