ABERDEEN defender Donervon Daniels believes the side will have a great chance of winning the Scottish Premiership title if they continue their rich vein of form.

The Dons are unbeaten in 13 league games dating back to a 2-1 reverse at home to Celtic on November 9.

Derek McInnes’ side travel to Celtic Park to face the league leaders on Sunday aiming to move level on points with the champions.

Daniels, signed on a six-month loan deal from West Brom in January, has rubbished suggestions that Sunday’s match is a title decider.

The defender is convinced, however, that continuing their good form will put them in a strong position to win the league, starting with a triumph at Celtic this weekend.

Daniels said: “If we can continue the good form that we’re on then we’ve got a good chance of picking up the prize at the end of the season.

“It’s just another game, we’ve got 30 points still to play for left in the league so we’ll just have to concentrate as we have every other game and put our focus into getting some points away from home.”

Daniels maintains that Aberdeen will not benefit from a Celtic team that may suffer from fatigue following their Europa League defeat by Inter Milan in Italy on Thursday, despite Ronny Deila’s side playing most of the game with 10 men.

The defender insists the team remain focused on their own game and is confident the side can get a positive result.

He added: “We just going to go and get the points. We aren’t putting our focus on them playing the Europa League. It’s another league game for us and it’s another big team we’re going to be playing with a good squad.

“We’re going there with the belief that we can pick up some points and come back home and enjoy the result.”
