Recent respective form guides

Aberdeen are not in the best of form at home, with two wins, two draws, and two defeats in their last six. While the Dons have scored five, a worringly large nine have been leaked at the other end.

The away form of Hearts is pretty dire, managing a paltry two draws from the last six matches. While the Jambos have hit four goals, 12 have hit the back of the wrong net.

Aberdeen's 10 points from seven games sees them lie inside the top half of the table, in 6th position. Hearts see themselves just below half way in the Clydesdale Bank Scottish Premier, showing a record of 7 points from their seven games played so far.
