Aberdeen v St Mirren | Betting Preview

Date: September 30, 2014
Venue: Pittodrie Stadium, Aberdeen, Scotland
Kick off time: 19:45 hrs BST

The Pittodrie Stadium in Aberdeen will be the setting this week when Aberdeen take on St Mirren in the Scottish Premier League. While the home side find themselves in a mid-table position currently with a game in hand over all but one of the teams above them, St Mirren are placed second bottom in the league.

Aberdeen form: W-W-L-W-L

Aberdeen are riding a bit of momentum into this upcoming match after a couple of successive victories at home against Ross County and Inverness. While they beat Ross County quite easily in the end as was evidenced by the 3-0 score-line, the win in the following week against Inverness was anything but straightforward.

Aberdeen had gone ahead a couple of times in the match only for Inverness to equalize on both occasions. They were however, able to hold on once Jonathan Hayes put them ahead for the third time just before the hour mark.

St Mirren form: L-W-L-L-L

Inverness have suffered an awful season in the Scottish top flight this term and come into this fixture after being beaten in front of their home fans by Celtic on September 27.

Their only win in their last five games this season came in an away game at Partick Thistle FC when Callum Ball equalized on the hour mark and Kenny Mclean gave them a 2-1 victory thanks to an injury time strike.

Key Players

Aberdeen: Adam Rooney

Rooney has been in red hot form for Aberdeen in recent times and he netted a hat-trick for the Reds as recently as September 23. Expect the 34 year old striker to give the St Mirren defenders an extremely tough 90 minutes on Wednesday.

St Mirren: Kenny Mclean

Mclean can hold his head high despite the poor season that his team have had so far. The former Scotland under-21 midfielder has contributed a fair share to whatever good work that his team have done in their past three matches, getting on to the score-sheet a couple of times in that time.

Betting Advice

Aberdeen will be looking to hold fort and it’s difficult to see them imploding against what looks like a poor St. Mirren side. They are 1.64 (bet365) to win the game to the 5.75 (BetVictor) if St. Mirren can upset the opposition.
