SPFL action tonight – it's been tough to predict recently with some surprising results and some teams finding a bit of form. Aberdeen were my selection last week as the edged out Livingston and tonight they welcome a Dundee side who are showing signs of improvement in recent weeks.
Aberdeen v Dundee (KO 7.45pm)
The Dons are quietly going about their business and back to back wins have put them right in the mix at the top end of the league.
They beat St Mirren 2-1 in Paisley on Saturday and the pleasing thing for boss Derek McInnes will be both strikers finding the net.
Scoring goals has been a probably for them this season but they finally look to have a bit of cutting edge back – they need to as they are still far from sound defensively having conceded two against St Johnstone, two against Livingston and one against St Mirren.
They welcome a Dundee side who have certainly turned the corner despite a some difficult matches. One defeat in five, draws against Rangers and Hibs and 4-0 hammering of Hamilton will give them belief they can get out of their current predicament and climb up the league.
A key factor for that has been veteran striker Kenny Miller – the 38 year old is rolling back the years and has 7 goals in his last 5 games and is looking to score in the 6th game in a row.
This will be a tough game for the Dons but they have a great record at home and have won the last 9 meetings with Dundee.
I did look at Aberdeen and over 1.5 match goals at 10/11, however Dundee are more than capable of scoring, especially the form Miller is in so going for goals at a decent price.
