History of the Aberdeen v Kilmarnock fixture

Aberdeen prepare to entertain Kilmarnock at Pittodrie Stadium on Saturday afternoon, looking to continue an impressive record. The Dons are clearly on top, having won 52 and lost only 19 of the 89 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Pittodrie Stadium was less than a year ago, in December 2007, the Dons carving out a narrow 2-1 victory in a Scottish Premier match.

Recent respective form guides

Aberdeen's dreadful home form has resulted in just 1 victory and 1 draw from their last six played. While Dons have scored 5, a worringly large 8 have been leaked at the other end.

Kilmarnock's away form is none too clever either, coming away with three points on 3 occasions, but drawing 1 and losing 2. The Killie's have a narrow positive goal difference over these games, with 8 goals for and 6 against.

Aberdeen see themselves just below half way in the Clydesdale Bank Scottish Premier, showing a record of 11 points from their 10 games played so far, Kilmarnock find themselves in a respectable 3rd position, courtesy of the 16 points they have accumulated from 10 games.
