Aberdeen’s title challenge has suffered a major setback following a dismal run which has seen Derek McInnes’ men collect just a single point from their last two Premiership outings thanks to a 2-2 draw at Hamilton Academical and a 2-0 defeat at home to Motherwell last weekend. Can the Dons bounce back by taking maximum points at Rugby Park on Sunday afternoon? We ‘re not so confident of their chances.
The Dons were runners-up in all three major domestic competitions last season with Celtic taking all the trophies and it is hard to imagine things being any different in 2017/18 with Brendan Rodgers’ Hoops already five points clear at the top of the Premiership table. This gap may not be too substantial but it is unlikely that Celtic will drop many points between now and the end of the campaign, therefore the Dons will be looking for a top-two finish at best.
As things stand, McInnes’ side sit just two points above Hibernian and three above Rangers, therefore they desperately need to return to winning ways, and fast. This could be an excellent time to be facing a Kilmarnock side which remain firmly in the bottom half of the league table although the hosts will have been boosted by some decent results of late.

Killie bounced back from their 3-0 hammering by Hibernian at the end of October by beating Hearts 2-1 at Murrayfield and collecting another point courtesy of a goal-less draw at Dundee on Saturday, however they will be in for a sterner test by Aberdeen this weekend. Nevertheless this will be a tough encounter for both sides and with the Dons desperate to avoid defeat yet again, we could see a cagey affair which looks set to end with the spoils being shared at Rugby Park, the bookmakers going 12/5 that this match ends all-square.
