Recent respective form guides

Inverness Caledonian Thistle's disastrous home run has meant they have managed only two draws from the last six matches. While Caley Thistle have scored four, a worringly large 11 have been leaked at the other end.

Aberdeen's away form is none too clever either, with two wins, two draws, and two defeats. Only five goals have been registered in this time, with seven leaked at the wrong end.

Inverness CT are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 32 points from 33 matches. Aberdeen see themselves just below half way in the Clydesdale Bank Scottish Premier, showing a record of 36 points from their 33 games played so far.
