The Premiership resumed this midweek, and it was not a nice outing for Aberdeen as they lost 2-0 at direct rivals Rangers. They lost their second spot in the league table to Rangers following the defeat.
Now, in their second league game following the winter break, the Dons face another tricky opponent in Kilmarnock – at Pittodrie.
With 43 points, the Dons are level with Rangers, but due to an inferior goal-difference, they find themselves in the third spot. The hosts must be aware that they can’t afford to drop points against Killie at home if they want the runners-up tag.
Killie are yet to play a league game following the winter break, but they defeated Ross County 1-0 at home in a cup game last Saturday. Before the break, Killie were in incredible form and were undefeated in their last six games.
Ironically, Killie’s last league defeat in the league came against Aberdeen when the Dons defeated Killie 3-1 at Rugby Park in the last week of November. However, earlier this season, Killie have played a 1-1 draw at Pittodrie.
Kille also boast of an incredible away record this season. The visitors, who haven’t lost a game on the road since September, have lost only of their ten away games this season.
As things stand, Killie find themselves in the seventh spot in the league table with 26 points.
