Dunfermline Athletic

Preview Aberdeen

Thursday, 24th Nov 2011

Time to show Aberdeen that we can play.

Andy Kirk v Aberdeen

With the game in hand against Celtic out of the way its now down to the much more important business of a home win and three points hopefully at the expense of 11th placed Aberdeen.  What it will need is 90 minutes of performances that have been coming in just one half of recent matches or as it was on Wednesday night - the final 30 minutes.

Premier League Record

Aberdeen have the upper hand in the Premier League games played at East End Park. That`s mainly because it took ten attempts before DA finally recorded their first home win over the Dons in February 1997.

The last time the Pars won at East End Park Mark Burchill secured the win with the only goal of the match. That was back in March 2006 but that was the last SPL goal that Dunfermline scored against Aberdeen. In the last ten matches including cup ties Dunfermline have only scored twice against Aberdeen.

Joe Cardle for Dunfermline v Aberdeen

With both teams languishing in the lower echelon of the SPL three points will be the ambition of both teams.

Andy Kirk comes close

Aberdeen have only scored one goal away from home this season, that was at Celtic Park last time on the road. Few will forget though that they smashed four past Dunfermline in that Friday night game.
