The Dons are looking to get back to winning ways after losing to Celtic last week .

Vital Quotes:

Aberdeen will be looking to bounce back after last weeks loss to Celtic at Celtic Park last week .

The Dons welcome back Ferne Snoyl to the squad after passing a fitness test after his injury last week but Barry Nicholson will miss out after his rib injury which is expected to keep him out for a few weeks !

The Dons fans will not see a return to the North of Noel Whelan as some may have expected as he has had a rethink on the contract offer from Livingston and signed a short term deal along with former Celtic player Colin Healy.
So it won’t be any of those ‘First Noel ‘ headlines then !

The Dons players will be under the watchfull eye of the gaffer from the stand today as he returns to his former employees,maybe they will charge him for the seat or ask him and Jimmy Nic do they want a ticket for the CIS Cup Final next week ?

It will be like an old boys reunion with the Jimmy’s and Sandy going back to Dunfermline to face the Young brother’s,lets hope the headline on Monday is not,’That Darren Young ‘ !It won’t be as I have just heard he is injured !

I would just like to make a plee for all those not going to a game today,Please could you attend the Motherwell v Falkirk match today as all the money from that match is going towards Cancer,now that is a worth-while cause no matter what team you support !
