Aberdeen legend Willie Miller has slaughtered his old side following their 2-0 loss to Hamilton. The Dons’ defeat was their fifth home match in a row without a win, a situation which has disappointed Miller.
“Their home results have been deplorable of late” he told BBC Sport.
Ironically, the Dons have been in excellent form away from home, winning their last seven matches on the road, which is a club record.
Unfortunately for Derek McInnes’ side, their next game is at home. And it is a big one. A potentially season defining Scottish Cup quarter-final clash against Rangers.
Should the Dons lose the game then their season is all but over. They currently sit eight points behind Rangers in the league table, and will be left with a battle for third place to play for.
That would not go down well at Pittodrie. Perhaps the Dons can take inspiration from their unexpected 1-0 win over Rangers in the Betfred Cup semi-final last year.
The difference between then and now is that Alfredo Morelos missed that game, and the in-from Rangers striker will be available for Sunday’s game.
Aberdeen will have to turn in one of their performances of the season if they are to turnaround their home form and knock Rangers out of the cup. They are capable of doing this, but at the moment, the odds would favour a Rangers victory.
