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.

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.
