Aberdeen have been up and down in form recently, though only lost twice in the last ten matches – and one of those defeats came at Ibrox against Rangers.
The Dons have only managed to string two separate runs of back-to-back wins together since a bright beginning to their season saw their opening day defeat to the Gers folloed by six straight wins.
However, they’re still at the top end of the table and a win would put them on the coat-tails of Celtic, one point off second place.
Rangers meanwhile have continued their relentless winning run in the league, with only a defeat to St Mirren in the Betfred Cup blemishing their recent form.
Rangers are waiting to learn for the extent of injuries to Scott Arfield and Kemar Roofe, while ex-Aberdeen midfielder Ryan Jack’s rehabilitation from a knee problem is continuing gradually.
Scott Wright is back for the home side, and Derek McInnes is enthused by the winger’s availability. He’s also seeking a ‘game-changer’ in the transfer window but he may need to move quickly to bring in a new face ahead of Sunday’s match.
Aberdeen last won a league meeting between the sides in December 2018, but have prevailed in Cup competitions more recently.
