IT’S been a quiet week for Greg with no bets advised on Wednesday or Thursday but he likes the look of Aberdeen tonight.
The Dons, still Premiership leaders, are aiming to bounce back from three defeats in a row when they visit Ross County with the match live on BT Sport 2.
Ross County v Aberdeen (7.45pm)
Good teams don’t turn into bad ones overnight and that rule still applies to Aberdeen. Much has been said about their recent slump but they are still the second strongest side in the league and will want to get back to winning ways after being destroyed by the famous Perth St Johnstone before the international break.
The Dons lost four goals that day from set-pieces and that’s something they’ll have been working on I’m sure over the international break. Prior to the slump the Dons had been watertight and much of their success was built on their defensive qualities.
They visit current over-achievers Ross county but in saying that they are one of the most financially-backed sides in the league. Jim McIntyre has brought in a number of players this season has had them playing really well but a 3-3 draw and 2-1 defeat last time out will give Aberdeen encouragment they can go to Dingwall and win.
The Dons won’t need much motivation after spending the last two weeks licking their wounds from three defeata on the spin. They’ll want to show everyone they intend on running Celtic close for as long as they can. I’m taking the Dons to nick this.
