ABERDEEN will be looking to hit the ground running in the Premier Sports Cup when they pay Peterhead a visit on Sunday afternoon.

The Dons endured a forgetful season last year, labouring to a 10th place in the top-flight – the club’s lowest league position since 2014.

As such, Aberdeen boss Jim Goodwin is currently overseeing an extensive summer rebuild at Pittodrie.

With a raft of significant incomings and outgoings currently taking place, the 2022/2023 campaign represents the start of a new era in the Granite City.

Peterhead, meanwhile, come into the new season off the back of a very respectable seventh-placed finish in League One last term.

However, Blue Toon boss Jim McInally says they are down to the bare bones at the moment, with six of their 17 players registered as trialists in last weekend's friendly defeat against Dundee.

Outright Betting

Unsurprisingly, Peterhead enter this contest as 9/1 underdogs with Ladbrokes while the 90 minute draw is also deemed unlikely at 5/1 with PaddyPower.

Aberdeen, who are entering the League Cup group stage for the first time, arrive at Balmoor as short-priced 1/4 favourites with William Hill.

Betting Angles

As already alluded to, Aberdeen are heavily fancied here so it's therefore a case of having to look elsewhere to obtain backable odds on a Dons success.

I'll therefore head to the Half Time/Full Time market and back Jim Goodwin's men at 4/5 with Boylesports.

The Aberdeen chief is now in the process of putting his own stamp on his team and he will be hoping to build some early-season momentum via the Premier Sports Cup.

Whether he is the right man for the Dandies remains to be seen but he will almost certainly view the early stages of this competition as an ideal opportunity to bolster his side’s confidence and provide his new recruits with an early opportunity to impress.

What's more, the Pittodrie outfit will take some encouragement from their 7-1 stroll to victory at Brechin City in midweek, as they concluded their pre-season preparations in style.

Whilst a trip to Peterhead will represent an upgrade on that challenge, the visitors should have too much class for a Blue Toon squad that looks worryingly threadbare.

As already mentioned, Peterhead chief Jim McInally has a number of personnel problems to contend with at the moment, issues that were laid bare in last Saturday's 4-0 loss at home to Dundee.

With all this in mind, backing Aberdeen to be leading at both the interval and at full time looks like a worthy boost in price at 4/5 with Boylesports
