Aberdeen travel to the West of Fife this weekend in the Scottish Cup quarter final. The Red Army have already sold out their 5,500 allocation, equating to almost half of Eastend Park. This is one of the biggest travelling crowds of recent times and a good atmosphere is expected. The dons have been allocated the East Stand as well as the Eastern halves of the North and Main stands.


This is the don`s first trip to Eastend Park in over 2 years, with the two teams having last met at this venue on the 25th of November 2006, when the pars were still in the SPL. The scoreline that day was 3-0 to Aberdeen, with Lee Miller and 2 goals from Darren Mackie giving the reds their victory.


This weekend also sees Calderwood return to his former club, from which he has signed several players since his arrival in the North East: Richie Byrne, Gary Dempsey and Barry Nicholson are examples. While others like Scott Muirhead have gone the other way.


With all of the above in mind, a cracking cup tie is almost guaranteed
