The least numbers of goals we’ve scored against the Dandy Dons in the past 6 games is two goals with only two occasions when we haven’t conceded and in 44 SPL games Aberdeen have kept just one clean sheet– but then again they’ve lost Ricky Foster.

The EPL

After a shaky start to their league campaign, Roy Hodgson’s team have managed to achieve back-to-back wins in the Premier League for the 1st time this season. Last week’s impressive away win at Bolton has managed to leap frog them into 13th place in the league table.

While Chelsea’s away form has been subject to some criticism in the past, they managed to dig out a hard fought win against the stubborn Blackburn side last week.   However, with Fernando Torres showing glimpses of what he has been capable of in the past, it should prove to be quite a spectacle!

Hopefully we can continue with some of the sparkling football we’ve seen this season with the exception of the Rangers game and I’m sure those like John Kelly who disagree with the culture of enforced poppy wearing will allow those of us who do wear the poppy to show our respects.  We shall see.
