Recent respective form guides
Aberdeen are not in the best of form at home, with two wins, two draws, and two defeats in their last six. While The Dons have scored 6, a worringly large 10 have been leaked at the other end.
The away form of Dundee Utd. however, is much more impressive, unbeaten in their last six, consisting of three wins and three draws. The games have constituted a decent return of 9 goals for the The Terrors, and 7 goals against.
Aberdeen's 11 points from 8 games sees them lie inside the top half of the table, in 6th position. Dundee Utd. lie just outside the playoff positions in the Clydesdale Bank Scottish Premier, picking up 13 from their 8 games so far.
