History of the Aberdeen v Kilmarnock fixture

Kilmarnock face a trip to Aberdeen at Pittodrie Stadium on Saturday afternoon, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Killie will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them lose 52 and win only 19 of the 89 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides 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.
