History of the Falkirk v Aberdeen fixture

Aberdeen face a trip to Falkirk at the Falkirk Stadium on Saturday afternoon, hoping to improve upon an average previous return from this fixture. Of the 82 games played, Dons have recorded 27 wins, and Falkirk have come away with 34 victories.

The most recent encounter between these two sides was less than a year ago, in January 2008, where the two teams cancelled each other out in an enthralling 2 - 2 draw in a Scottish F.A. Cup match.
