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 4, a worringly large 8 have been leaked at the other end.

St. Mirren's away form is none too clever either, winning 2 of the last six, but losing the other 4. While the Buddies have hit 6 goals, 10 have hit the back of the wrong net.

Aberdeen see themselves just below half way in the Clydesdale Bank Scottish Premier, showing a record of 14 points from their 12 games played so far, St. Mirren are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 12 points from 12 matches.
