    Opposition report: Aberdeen

    Opposition report: Aberdeen

    Aberdeen play host to Motherwell on Wednesday night in the first Ladbrokes Premiership match of the new decade.

    Here’s a look at our opponents.

    The story so far

    Dumbarton were the Dons’ opening opponents on their return from a winter break trip to Dubai. After large spells of pressure, Derek McInnes’ side eventually ran out 1-0 winners thanks to Sam Cosgrove’s late penalty.

    Motherwell’s nearest challengers for third spot, Aberdeen sit a point behind in fourth spot as they look to avoid a repeat of failing to take the “best of the rest” spot on goal difference to Kilmarnock last campaign.

    Form guide

    With five wins, three draws and two defeats in their last 10 fixtures, Aberdeen are in steady form heading into Wednesday night’s fixture.

    A 1-1 draw with Hearts ended 2019, with Niall McGinn equalising in the capital in a 1-1 draw.

    Ominously, they’ve won four of their last five Premiership matches at Pittodrie, beating Kilmarnock, St Mirren, Hamilton and Livingston. A 2-2 draw with Rangers was the only break in the victorious run.

    Three to watch

    Andrew Considine

    It may have been almost 16 years since Andrew Considine made his Aberdeen debut. Five hundred appearances on and the defender continues to thrive at Pittodrie.

    His performances this season have led to suggestions that he may receive a Scotland call-up for the first time in his career and Considine himself has expressed that he feels he is getting better as he gets older.

    As well as contributing to keeping opposition attackers out, Considine continues to show an eye for goal too – netting three times in the league this season, the most recent of which earned the Dons a 2-2 draw against Rangers.

    Dylan McGeouch

    Derek McInnes finally secured the services of a player he’s admired for a long time when Dylan McGeouch put pen to paper on a two-and-a-half year deal with Aberdeen earlier this month.

    The midfielder played a big role in Hibs’ promotion back to the Scottish Premiership and Scottish Cup success in 2016, though it was his contributions during the 2017/18 campaign that really caught the eye. International recognition came at the end of that season as a result, as Scotland took on Peru and Mexico.

    McGeouch swapped Edinburgh for Sunderland in July 2018 but struggled to be a regular as the Black Cats endured a rollercoaster campaign, culminating in them narrowly missing out on promotion via the play-offs. Football was hard to come by for the 26-year-old this season down south and he will be hoping to quickly rediscover his form back on home soil as Aberdeen fight for third spot.

    Sam Cosgrove

    From a player who fans feared would never be able to break his scoring duck for the Dons to one of the most prolific in the country, as league football resumes in 2020, Sam Cosgrove’s stock is at an all-time high.

    Having racked up 21 goals already this season, Derek McInnes has expressed his desire to retain the services of the striker who has already found the net against ‘Well in 2019/20 – opening the scoring as the Dons eased to a 3-0 success at Fir Park earlier this season.

    Cosgrove has been linked to a number of clubs during January. But given he has contributed almost 37% of their league goals this season, it will surely take a sizeable bid for Aberdeen to part with a player who is almost unrecognisable from the one that had scored just once in 12 games for Carlisle United when they paid a nominal fee for his services in January 2018.

    Goalkeeper Khym Ramsay has been recruited from Rangers. She joins defender Hollie Thomson, who returns after a spell out of the game with injury.

    Midfielder Lauryn Reside returns to the club after a year with Celtic, while forward Lori Gardner signs on again having spent 2019 with the women of steel.

    Reserves beat Ross County

    Reserves beat Ross County

    Motherwell resumed SPFL Reserve League action on Monday with a 2-1 home win over Ross County.

    Christian Ilic’s first half double was enough to make the difference at Broadwood, with a host of first team squad members getting playing time.

    Ilic was joined by Trevor Carson, Casper Sloth and Mikael Ndjoli in the starting team, along with Ross MacIver and Jamie Semple.

    The Croatian opened the scoring after 21 minutes, sending a curling left-footed effort into the top corner of the net via the crossbar.

    He doubled the advantage just before the break. Carson’s kick fell to MacIver, who squared for Ilic to slot home.

    Ross County got a goal back on the hour mark, despite calls for a foul, but the Steelmen held on to take all three points.

    Next up for Maurice Ross’ side is an SPFL Reserve League Cup match with Dundee on Monday, 27 January. Kick-off at Broadwood is at 2pm.

    Motherwell: Carson, Brown, Hussain, Devine, Johnston, Sloth, Cornelius, Semple, MacIver, Ilic, Ndjoli.

    Next up: Aberdeen

    Motherwell play their first Ladbrokes Premiership game of 2020 at Aberdeen on Wednesday night.

    Kick-off at Pittodrie is at 7.45pm.

    Tale of the tape

    It’s third versus fourth in the table, with Stephen Robinson’s side sitting a point ahead with 21 games played.

    The Steelmen have won three and lost two of their last five and came back off the winter break with a resounding 3-0 William Hill Scottish Cup win at Dundee on Saturday.

    Aberdeen progressed past Dumbarton at home, thanks to Sam Cosgrove’s late penalty in a 1-0 win. They’ve also won three of their last five, drawing one and losing one.

    Head to head

    Aberdeen have won three of the last five encounters between the two teams, with Motherwell winning the other two.

    The last outing came at Fir Park in October, when the visitors ran out convincing 3-0 victors.

    Motherwell’s last win at Pittodrie came in October 2017, when Louis Moult bagged a double in a 2-0 win.
