The dons look to get back to winning ways as they travel to St. Mirren Park for the first time ever….
Jimmy Calderwood spoke of the good quality of the playing surface when compared with Pittodrie:
‘I was at the ground recently and it looks fabulous.
‘It is a wonderful playing surface and you can play the ball at pace there. I think our flair players like Sone Aluko have found it difficult at home in the past couple of games to get one-on-one with opponents.
‘When the pitch is like that you are probably better to play away from home because you don’t need to take the game to the opposition as much.
St. Mirren Team News:
Right back Jack Ross will miss out through suspension. While Franco, Miranda, steven Robb, Stephen O’Donell, Tom Brighton and Marc McAusland are all out. Scott Cuthbert returns though.
Player to watch: Andy Dorman
The attcking midfielder is likely to be one of St. Mirren’s main threats going forward.
Aberdeen Team News:
Gary McDoanld is still out with what would appear to be a fairly long term injury while Andrew Considine returns and Jamie Smith appears to have come through his 15 minutes against Kilmarnock intact.
Player to watch: Lee Miller
The big frontamn hasn’t scored in the last seven matches. Surely he is due a goal tonight.
