Aberdeen have only collected one win and three draws from the last six home games played. Only five goals have been registered in this time, with six in the wrong end.

Aberdeen see themselves just below half way in the Clydesdale Bank Scottish Premier, showing a record of 26 points from their 24 games played so far, Dunfermline find themselves stuck right at the bottom of the division. Their 23 games have yielded only 17 points.
