History of the Aberdeen v Motherwell fixture

Aberdeen prepare to entertain Motherwell at Pittodrie Stadium on Saturday afternoon, looking to continue an impressive record. The Dons are clearly on top, having won 63 and lost only 15 of the 120 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Pittodrie Stadium was less than a year ago, in March 2006, where the two teams cancelled each other out in an enthralling 2-2 draw in a Scottish Premier match.
